I started playing ultimate in my sophomore year of high school after deciding that running year-round was making me crazy. Little did I know how much running was involved in ultimate, but I stuck with it and I am now in my seventh year of playing ultimate! I decided to come to Cornell for the non-humid summers and mild winters, as well as the stellar ultimate program. As a freshman at Cornell, the first thing I did was to seek out the ultimate team, which was easily the best decision I made during my time at Cornell. My favorite memories of being on the Roses includes the big things, like winning Regionals and going to Nationals in 2014, but also finding such a close-knit group that has made my time at Cornell so enjoyable.
