HS Ultimate Players getting press on college decisions

Hats off to some positive press coverage from around the country for ultimate players graduating...

Colorado Academy's captain Connor Abernathy will attend Bates

His athletic involvement at CA has included lacrosse, tennis, and Ultimate Frisbee. Connor has played on CA's tennis team for three years, earning a varsity letter and played lacrosse for two years. CA's Ultimate Frisbee team was the state champion in 2008, his junior year. In his senior year, he served as a team captain.

Erika Allen of Temple High School (Texas) will attend Texas Tech
Friday was “kind of a sad day,” said Ms. Allen, who is a member of the school’s diving, cross country, volleyball and track teams, and is also a member of the Polyfoniks show choir and Ultimate Frisbee Club.
