The ultimate Frisbee club has returned.

Geometry teacher Marta Puyana started the club again after two years. In the 2017-2018 school year, former Biology teacher Justin Brodie and Puyana had to end the club due to personal time constraints.

“My first and second year doing ultimate Frisbee we had a good number of kids show up,” Puyana said. “ I’m just trying to get it started again and get more kids involved in the club.”

The first and second year there were around 15 students. Who shows up to the group has also changed throughout the previous years.

“The ROTC kids would come out in the fall but in the spring they couldn’t keep coming because they had ROTC stuff,” Puyana said. “I wanted it to be for kids that were not in sports and still wanted to do sports but those kids were not interested. They were in other activities and those other activities took priority.”

Sophomore Christian Kelley went to the first Ultimate Frisbee club meeting because it brought back old memories. 

“My brother and I used to throw Frisbees around the river a few years ago,” Kelley said.

The kids who show up to meetings practice outside the tennis courts on every other Wednesday.

“I have to plan our games with teachers from other schools,” Puyana said. “It’s not a UIL sport, it’s just like Key Club or chess.”

Since the club doesn’t have many members, some students are afraid they won’t be able to play.

“Hopefully I will do it for the rest of the year if it doesn’t get shut down,” Kelley said.
