2nd place Metro Boston Sectionals
Our 2005 competitive (outdoor) season began with Spring Break in late March. After six weeks of indoor practices full of hucking, sprinting, and tons of drills, the EWO drove seventeen hours to take the south by storm. We placed 7th in Southerns at Georgia Southern University and then headed to Tybee Island, impressing other Frisbeers mostly with our team jogging skills on the very first day. The week continued with a very strict training regimen and ended with Ultimax. We EWO played hard, despite the plague of nausea/vomiting that unfortunately spread through the ranks. Three wins on Saturday found us in the semis against Brown, where we unfortunately lost a very tight game at universe point and ended up finishing fourth behind Brown, Dartmouth and Cornell.
Later in the Spring, the Tufts women played solidly at Yale Cup, beating Rutgers, Delaware, Northeastern and Yale B with no problems at all. Sunday proved a little more taxing as the EWO were eliminated after tough point-for-point games against Yale A and Brown, finishing a slightly disappointing 4-2.
By the time Sectionals came around the EWO arrived ready to play to potential. After winning all four games on Saturday, the EWO came out strong on Sunday morning for an extremely close game against MIT. Tufts played their best, stepping it up on D, crankinÕ out the hucks, and sprinting toward each throw. After a Tufts half, sMITe picked it up and took the game, 15-13. But we finished 2nd in Metro Boston Sectionals and were ready for Regionals. Unfortunately, the frigid rain on the Saturday of New England Regionals proved a challenge for everyone, but we EWO took our first game and played close with Brown during the second round. After Tufts took half, Brown answered back and tied the game. With the hard cap on, both teams played aggressively, ending in another unfortunate Brown win.
We EWO were down and had trouble bouncing back after a freezing cold third-round bye. Winning easily against Harvard, we faced BU in a windy, foggy rain. The EWO took half, but when BU threw an unfamiliar defense and the rain increased, the EWO suffered a disappointing loss and an altogether shocking elimination from UPA Regionals
