The Kalamazoo College’s women’s ultimate frisbee team, the Queen Bees, had a spectacular season despite being only four years old.
The team made it to the quarterfinals in the week-long High Tide Tournament, competed in the Division III sectionals tournament of the college championship series and earned a spot at the Division I regionals.
At regionals the Queen Bees played teams like Michigan State and Northwestern, schools with coaches, larger student bodies and more substitutes.
“We learned a lot about what we can do and what we need to work on. Playing with such good teams brought out our best and gave many of our new and old players plenty of experience,” senior co-captain Cassandra Dobbins said.
The team had around 20 players this year and 16 went to sectionals and regionals.
“Our freshman recruits were key to the success of our team this year,” senior co-captain Cody Musselman said.
“We are still a young team, but I am so proud of all of the hard work and dedication exhibited by the Queen Bees this year and I look forward to keeping track of the team’s developments and future success,” she said.
