Not all of us can say like Blake that we have been playing on Brute Squad for 12 YEARS...(wow!) Many of us have played on other club teams (womens and mixed) throughout the years - I think Kirsten and Leila win with the longest lists (that can be up for debate). For some of us, we played on the same team, but never … Continue reading Throwback Thursday…to the (other) Club Years
This week we pay homage to our ballers (ok, you are right, all of our TEAMmates/coaches are ballers) but these ballers are special. There are reasons we call some people Princess LiLi and bow to Queen LeiLei every time she touches the frisbee. I don't think we have to get into the way she farms … Continue reading Throwback Throw Like a Girl Thursday
The Bella Donna were a force to be reckoned with in college. Always a powerhouse team. Maybe that explains why we have so many Wisco grads on our team. 6 of our TEAMmates went to Wisconsin: Betsy, Witte, Courtney, Becca, Shira, and Bitterman. Courtney played with TEAMmates and coached them. Here's a look back at the … Continue reading And Even More College Throwbacks…Here’s to the Wisconsin Bella Donna
Throwback to Tufts College years. We had 4 TEAMmates who went to Tufts, not all overlapping (Kirsten, Mia, Qxhna, and Claudia). Also our coach, Mike went to Tufts as well, and through creepy googling (thanks internet!) we were able to recover some photo evidence, as well as Mike coaching the Tufts men's team.
The throwback to college years continues. Just look at these adorable budding friendships 🙂 This week, we feature the crew that went to college in Boston (excluding Tufts- hint that will probably come next week). 2 of our teammates went to Brandeis and 2 went to BU, so they got to play with and against each other. … Continue reading Throwback to More College Years…Brandeis and Boston University
So begins the throwbacks to the college years, where many of us were teammates. Here's to the fun times, the weird times, the high-release backhand times, the low-inside out flick times and the memories that college brings back. This Thursday we highlight Umich, where Ann Arbor was lucky to have all on one team: Ebae, Becky, Paula, … Continue reading Throwback to the College Years….UMich
Some of us were little nuggets when we started playing frisbee. Visors were the style ok. We played with and against each other at NUTC camp, in middle school intramurals, and in high school. I have to be honest, this is mostly an Amherst, Andover, and Paideia throwback. We have even had teammates coaching other teammates … Continue reading Throwback to 7th – 12th Grade (The Awkward Years)
This weeks Throwback Thursday #tbt is all about baby Brutes! ...Maybe more like toddler Brutes- but see if you can guess the mini version of who is who (coaches included! And maybe coaches kids...) You can spot atleast 2 Brute babes with frisbees in their hands. #bladesfordays
So, we have found that there are some fun connections with teammates throughout the years - and we are going to feature this and more on our new weekly editions of Throwback Thursday... In honor of the 2014 Women's Junior World's team win (with our very own teammate as a contributer!) today is a throwback to junior worlds days.... … Continue reading Throwback Thursday!
