Amid loud, hype team chants, the Strath Haven Boys’ Ultimate Frisbee beat Haverford 15-4 on Thursday, April 18.

The game started shaky, with the windy and chilly weather pitted against them, but they overcame the challenges. 

“The wind was a lot different than what we’re used to,” junior captain Colin Jarvis said. “So it was really getting those throws tuned in the first half that we were lacking, and in the second half, we finally got most of them down.” 

The win was made from a major team effort to keep scoring. 

“I think we did really well. We had a super clean offense,” sophomore spirit captain Ryan Markey said. 

Though they were ahead most of the game, a layout by senior Gus Stach fired the team up on a scoring spree. 

“It gave me a lot of energy, and it helped. When somebody on our team does that, it brings the team’s energy up, and then we can surge forward,” Markey said. “It makes everyone more confident when they’re playing.” 

Besides the winning aspect, this game was one of many of the team’s seasonal matches and tournaments to prepare for state qualifiers (called Cities) and state championships. 

“When we win one of these games, it helps us have a good seed going to Cities, and they help us prepare [for Cities],” head coach Lindsay Goldsmith-Markey said. “These games are really important for us because they allow us to practice playing tightly, even when we expect to win.”
