[not a math post – this one is about ultimate]
Yesterday I had a 6 hour drive and for part of it was sort of day dreaming about how great it would be if women’s ultimate could get as much great publicity as the US women’s soccer team did. After seeing post after post about Carli Lloyd I thought about all of the great #10’s in women’s ultimate. Saw lots of them play this past weekend. In no particular order:
(1) Fury’s Gen Laroche
7 club championships + 3 world championships. Oh, and did you know she’s been on Sportcenter’s top 10?
(2) Riot’s Shira Stern:
She’ll be representing the US on the U23 team in London next week, and this is her 2nd time on the U23 team! You can follow the U23 teams at the World Championships here:
And then 30 minutes after publishing this post, Shira’s grab in the US Open finals gets a Sportscenter top 10 nomination:
(3) Brute Squad’s Amber Sinicrope
So happy to see her returning to Brute this season. Even with the year off, I think she’s the active “most seasons with Brute” player. I have her Amherst high school jersey hanging on the wall of my study – from her pre- #10 days 🙂
(4) Scandal’s Jenny Fey
Guess who led the US Open in combined goals (13) and assists (23). Come on, take a wild guess . . . .
(5) Phoenix’s Michelle Ng
Before Qxhna’s All Star Ultimate Tour the biggest fundraiser I can remember in ultimate was this:
I saw Liên Hoffmann wearing her Without Limits jersey at the Harvard stadium on Monday! There are not enough ways to thank Michelle for all she’s done for ultimate.
(6) Speaking of Qxhna – she wore #10 in college, for the Beach World’s team, and on Brute Squad last year:
Please support her All Star Tour if you haven’t yet:
and watch her incredible Callahan video, too:
(7) Another #10 super star from college who is crushing it in club right now is Ozone’s Sophie Darch. Here’s her awesome Callahan video from last year:
(8) One #10 we’ve not been able to see yet this year is former Molly Brown captain Lindsey Cross.
She had a nice interview a few years back on Ultimate Interviews:
and also kicked off Molly Brown’s awesome twitter roster announcement this year:
(9) One other #10 (who may not be wearing #10 this year, I’m not sure) that we’ve not seen yet is former #10 for the Capitals and current Traffic player Kathryn Pohran. I’m very happy to see her back after an awful knee injury at ECC last year.
(10) Who’s the 10th #10? Who did I forget on my drive last night? You tell me!
