With Falmouth Rogue now graduating high school seniors up into the world of college ultimate, this is a perfect time to share highlights from the recent 2019 College Championships. The state of the college game is strong and getting stronger. I can’t wait to see our players start to show up in highlight reels like this! It won’t be long.
Caitlyn Hanely has been awarded the first Falmouth Rogue College Scholarship!
I took over the Falmouth middle school ultimate program in its second year of existence back in 2014, inheriting a small team of players that included a very excited and serious 7th grader named Caitlyn. In her two years as a middle school player, Caitlyn became a team leader and a fantastic player, something she continued excelling at when she joined the high school team. This year was Caitlyn’s final year of high school and she’ll be going off to college up at Bates, where she’ll also play on their ultimate team.
Caitlyn is the perfect first winner of the Falmouth Rogue College Scholarship, which I was very happy to award her this week during the high school team banquet. The $200 scholarship is admittedly on the smaller side, but should help at least pay for some books.
Congratulations Caityln! We can’t wait to share highlight videos of you playing for Bates.

I missed a weekend tournament a couple of weeks ago because I was down in Virginia Beach playing ultimate. Here’s a video of what that looked like. Sadly, I did not make this cut. 😀

Sports is sports. Draymond Green lays some wisdom down on teammate Jordan Bell after a missed dunk.
And a great place for this video showing ultimate pros dropping and throwing the disc into the ground.
No practice today due to rain. While you’re inside, check out this great ESPN-produced game between Boston Brute Squad and Denver’s Molly Brown for the Women’s 2018 National Championships Semifinals. Fantastic game!
Intramural starts tomorrow!
This week we head outside to play on the grass, as our travel team, Falmouth Rogue, also starts up its regular season.
Intramural will run Mondays and Wednesdays from 6-7:30pm.
Travel team will play or practice Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, in addition to Intramural days. Travel team practices are longer and run 6-8pm.
Both teams practice and play on the grass fields behind the Falmouth High School. Registration for Rogue, the travel team, is closed, but kids can still sign up for Intramural.
