Ultimate Prepares for Showdown with Shady Hill

Last year’s ultimate team finished with a 6-1 record. The only loss came in the season opener against Shady Hill where the team fell by one score, 9-8. Once again, ultimate will begin the spring against their rivals from Cambridge and will be looking to reverse the tables this year. With nine returning players, the Blue & Gold are using last year’s loss as motivation and have set high expectations for their upcoming campaign. Coach Andy Rentschler is cautiously optimistic about this year’s squad and has seen marked improvement from a handful of veteran players, including Sophie Myers and Stella Balter who are each off to a great start so far. The duo will need to continue their strong play next week during the big game, which will take place at Winn Brook Elementary in Belmont on Thursday, April 4.
