This was our last tournament for the season. It was great spending so many Saturdays together and bonding as a team! For this day, we woke up at the crack of dawn, excited to show all the other teams what DA is all about. 🙂

Energized by Mr. Caroll’s Uncrustable, and brownies freshly made by the parents of Josh Freedman ‘26 (thank you!) we championed our opponents (thank you Monument Mountain JV, Amherst H.S. JV, and Performing Arts H.S.) and moved up the ranks until we encountered our final battle: Monument Mountain Varsity.

Ending up second on the podium, we want to shout out Davey ‘24, Diego ‘24, Charlie ‘26, Kevin ‘24, Elena ‘25, and Hazel ’26 for awesome defense. Sammy ‘25, Ephraim ‘24, Preyas ‘24, and Ashish ‘24, scored some top-notch points!  Great throws!  Additionally, Josh ‘26 always pulled through by making awesome pulls, and Justin ‘24, Nikil ‘24, and Jean ‘26 made great cuts, leaving dust in the grass.

Our tournament play was dedicated, on Saturday, to the memory of Shane M. McCarthy ’21, who played D.A. Ultimate with all his heart and captained our team in his final year at Deerfield.

On a final note, we want to shout out Forrest Gao ‘23 for coming to our game. He was an awesome player during his time at Deerfield and when we saw him we felt a wave of his power from Ultimate days spread through the team. Also, shoutout to our fans! Your support showed us that we could play even harder than we knew. Let’s go Big Green! (Writeup by Vivian Gonzalez ’25).
