Students glow in dark with Pirate Ultimate

By Marisa Cataldi, Staff Writer

Pirate Ultimate, the Ultimate Frisbee team on campus, will be hosting Glow Frisbee at the

intramural fields Thursday, Sept. 24 at 11 p.m. Students now have the opportunity to shine or, in

this case, glow. The event will be open to any Armstrong students who are wanting to come out

and have a good time.

Normally, playing sports in the dark seems like the best way to break an ankle or two, but Glow

Frisbee will be a fun way to meet the Pirate Ultimate team and learn the sport. Last year, there

was a turnout of about 60 people and the team’s goal is to top that number this year. Members

hope to interest new people in coming to tryouts for the spring season.

“I’ve heard about the Glow Frisbee event,” senior music education major Robert Kirkum, said.

“I feel like it’s going to be a great time and I hope this will help bring more people out for

tryouts next week.”

Pirate Ultimate Vice President Brett Becker explained that members compete against other

colleges across the nation. “You get a chance to meet players from other teams that you would

never have gotten a chance to meet otherwise, as well as compete with them on a college level,”

Becker said. “The ultimate community as a whole is amazing,”

During the spring season, Pirate Ultimate travels to different colleges in the south, playing in

tournaments for the weekend.

Tryouts will be held Sept. 30 and Oct. 1 from 7–9 p.m. on the Intramural Fields. Students are

encouraged to participate. For more information, email ultimate.frisbee@armstrong.edu.
