We are fortunate to have a great group of coaches to lead the BHS Ultimate team:
I grew up on Bainbridge Island, and began playing Ultimate as an 8th grader at Hyla Middle School. I quickly fell in love with the game, and it’s been a big part of my life ever since.
As a high school Sophomore, I was one of the founding members of the BHS Ultimate team. I played competitively through high school and college, making three trips to the College National Championship tournament as a member of the Carleton College team (CUT). After college, I played two seasons of club Ultimate in Seattle before retiring from competitive play.
I have coached the BHS Ultimate team since 2011, and in 2014 began coaching the Hyla Middle School team as well. Coaching Ultimate is one of my great passions, and I love the opportunity to share my knowledge of this great and unique sport.
I first played Ultimate when I was out on a run, and my route took me past a game…. I was invited to join, and have loved playing ever since. Our whole family plays (except our dog, Murphy – he prefers balls to discs).
I have played at the college level for the University of Chicago, and at the club level in both the women’s and mixed divisions. I had the good fortune of competing at several national and world club tournaments with my women’s teams — Seattle Riot, and Seattle Women on the Verge. I was a member of the Verge team’s 3-peat world champion squad.
I started coaching on Bainbridge Island in 2012, and have coached here at the middle school and high school levels. I love coaching Ultimate – it is such fun to see players do amazing things on the field!
