Veni Vidi Vici, the Lawrence women’s ultimate frisbee team, advanced to Central Regionals this past weekend by taking second place in the Lake Superior Section. The team went 2-1 in the round robin tournament, losing only to the UW-Madison Belladonnas, the perennial superpower of the section. Soft in the Middle, Lawrence’s men, unfortunately failed to qualify.Vici’s wins came over UW-Steven’s Point and the UW-Madison B Team. The victory over Madison B was particularly exciting as the Lawrence women were forced to come from being down 5-8 to take the 10-9 lead at “universe point.”
The team is now preparing to travel to Northfield, Minnesota, ultimate’s rural haven, for Central Regionals over the weekend of the 31st. In addition to the towns “cute” downtown and its olfactory wonder, the Malt-O-Meal factory, Vici will see some of the best ultimate teams in the Midwest.
