Doh! Too much rain. No ultimate today.
The Callahan Award is the highest honor awarded to college ultimate players and is given to one male and one female player each year who best epitomizes the qualities of high skill, talent, good spirit, sportsmanship, and leadership. One of the fun things about the Callahan Award for ultimate fans is the pile of promotional videos put together by friends and teammates of potential Callahan Award winners. The videos pull together each players highlights and are set to music and edited to be exciting to watch.
Here are the Callahan videos from a few of the past year’s winners as well as some of this years videos from other college stars.

Get excited! The Intramural Team’s first practice and game is this Saturday, May 30th! We’ll be gathering at our normal spot on the grass fields behind the Falmouth High School, next to the turf and track, and playing from 4-6pm.
I have made some changes to the start time for Monday Intramural. Boys lacrosse runs on Mondays until 6:30, so we’ll be starting at 6pm starting on Monday, May 9th, to give the lax boys a chance to miss the least amount of game time as possible. Each Intramural session will start with a half hour of warm-ups, so the boys lacrosse players shouldn’t miss too much game time with our 6pm start times. The sun sets a little too early for us to start at 6pm on our first Monday meeting, on May 2nd, so we’re sticking to our 5:30pm start time for just that one day.
Apologies for the confusion here. As always, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if I can clarify anything.
