Each year, the men’s ultimate Frisbee team proves to be very popular among club sports at Tufts. Currently made up of about 75 people, the program is comprised of an A team, a B team and a C team.
The A team, known as the Elephant Men, finished 10th overall at last May’s USA Ultimate College National tournament. Competing against traditional Division 1 athletics programs like the University of Pittsburgh, University of Iowa and University of Illinois, the Elephant Men joined the likes of Carleton College and Colorado College as one of the smallest schools in attendance.
Junior Robby Perkins-High joined the program as a freshman and was named co-captain of the team after last spring’s season. Here he walks us through the three throws that he and his co-captain Alex Cooper, A12, are focusing on teaching new members of the program this fall.
