Step 3: Nationals and Thank You!

May 07, 2018

Dear friends, family, and frisbee enthusiasts,

 

Wow, Regionals was a rollercoaster of emotions as many of you who came to watch can attest. We found out what it really means to earn a bid to nationals, but more importantly we found out just what Danger is capable of.

 

After a heartbreaking loss on an insane universe point against Ohio State in semis, and then a 5-2 deficit in the game to go against Case Western, tensions were a bit high. Our team had to dig deep, keep our heads up, and shift gears in order to make a comeback. And we did. We rose to take half at 8-7 and then continued the momentum in the second half to win the game at 14-7. We’re going to Nationals, folks! Milwaukee here we come!

 

This means another whole month in Oakland, another whole month of training together, and another whole month with our beloved graduates. May is truly the best time of the year, and with just eight practices left before Milwaukee, we plan on making every precious moment left in the season count.

 

Also, thank you to everyone who has followed us on our journey thus far. Your generous donations helped us to end our campaign raising $6,625, which is well past our goal of $5,000. We are immensely lucky to have all your support and kindness, and we hope to make you all proud as one of the 20 college teams to compete in Nationals 2018!

Carolyn for Callahan!

April 25, 2018

As the school semester winds down and finals approach, the excitement continues with the announcement of our Callahan nominee, Carolyn Normile. For those of you who are unaware the Callahan award is ultimate’s oldest and most prestigious award. It goes to the player who embodies superior athleticism, outstanding sportsmanship, leadership, and dedication. The player to receive it is recognized as the most valuable player in college ultimate. For five years, Carolyn has worked extremely hard to build Pitt’s program up to the level it is, and we are all so incredibly proud of her. If you haven’t seen her nomination video, here’s the link to check it out!  

Step 2: Regionals

April 23, 2018

Hello again Danger friends and family,  

 

It was absolutely wonderful to see so many of you cheering us on at Sectionals despite all the crazy weather that Allentown threw at us. On Saturday, we competed against Penn, Temple, Drexel, and West Virginia in pool play. On Sunday we played Penn State in the morning and then West Chester in the finals where we won 1st place! So much of our success and ability to go undefeated at Sectionals was due to our fans. Thanks for bringing us food, shelter, and gatorade, and overall lifting our spirits by being one of the most hype sidelines around! Also big shout out to the families that housed us!

 

Lastly, we cannot express how much it means to us for those who have donated to our campaign thus far. Your contribution really shapes our college experience by allowing us to continue to play the game we love with the people we love. We would not be where we are without all your support and generosity. Danger truly has the best fans and we look forward to seeing some of you as we host Regionals in Steubenville, Ohio next weekend (April 28th and 29th) in hopes of securing one of the region’s three bids to Nationals. Plenty more excitement to come!

 

Lots of Love, Pitt Women’s Ultimate

Step 1: Sectionals

April 12, 2018

Hi Friends, Family, and Fans!

 

Thank you so much to everyone who has donated to our campaign so far. We appreciate all of your love and support. Danger is the team we are today because of you. 

 

Danger is currently preparing for Sectionals this upcoming weekend, April 14th and 15th, in Allentown, Pennsylvania. This initial tournament qualifies successful teams for Regionals, which are in Steubenville, Ohio the weekend of April 28th and 29th. 

 

This year, the Ohio Valley Region has three bids for Nationals! Normally, the Ohio Valley Region has two bids. The OV Region was allocated three bids this year because three Ohio Valley teams, Pitt, Ohio State, and West Chester, are ranked in the top 20. This means that the top 3 teams at Regionals are able to attend Nationals in Milwaukee.

 

Be sure to follow along on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram to see updates regarding these upcoming tournaments! We are so grateful for all of the love and support we receive from friends, family, and fans. Without all of you, we would never have the opportunities that we do today.

 

Hail to Pitt Ultimate!

 

Love,

Pitt Women’s Ultimate

 

Here is a picture from Regional's last year, where we secured the first of two bids for the Ohio Valley Region!

 

Levels
Choose a giving level

$25

Backhand

The backhand is the throw you learn first. It may seem simple, but it is one of the most important throws a player can master. Your donation of $25 helps fill up two cars with gas on the way to our tournaments.

$50

Flick

The flick throw is usually the second throw a player learns. Once mastered, it allows players to throw trickier throws, and more successfully play against the defense. Your donation of $50 will cover the cost of a hotel room for one night.

$75

Lefty Backhand

Lefty backhand--a favorite of Head Coach Ben Banyas--is a clever way to trip up the mark and get off those quick give-and-goes. Like the lefty backhand, $75 is a great way to give so that a player can go to Nationals.

$100

Scoober

A scoober is an upside down throw from across the chest. This is used by experienced throwers. Your donation of $100 partially pays for a bid fee for a tournament.

$250

Hammer

The hammer is an inverted over-the-head-throw. It is a tricky throw, but also one of the most fulfilling feelings upon completion. Your donation of $250 will cover the cost of gas for all of our cars for a tournament.

$500

Layout D

Though not a type of throw, a layout D is one of the most exciting and important defensive moves a player can make on the field. $500 will pay for the team to attend a tournament like Northwest Challenge.

$1,000

Greatest

A greatest is THE ultimate play in a game - it is when a player is in the air and catches the disc out of bounds, but manages to throw the disc back in bounds before hitting the grass. Another player is then there in the end zone to catch the disc for the score. A gift of $1,000 pays for two flights for cross country tournaments.
