Horsecows Excited About 2011-2012 Season

September 12, 2011

The Oberlin Flying Horsecows men’s ultimate frisbee team had a successful season last year. Coming off a bid to DIII nationals the previous year, the 2010-2011 Flying Horsecows had high expectations. Despite losing many key seniors from the class of 2010, the 2010-2011 Flying Horsecows did not disappoint.

With a combination of technique, experience, and youthful athleticism the Flying Horsecows outplayed their opponents.

On April 16th and 17th, the Flying Horsecows traveled to Ada, OH to play against the best frisbee teams in Ohio at sectionals. After battling through freezing rain, scares of pneumonia, and violent wind, the Oberlin Flying Horsecows finished 4th at sectionals and advanced to regionals.

The team then traveled to Manheim, PA to play against the best frisbee teams in Ohio and Pennsylvania at regionals on April 30th and May 1st. The Flying Horsecows played their hardest against formidable opponents, but came up short of a bid to DIII nationals, placing in 7th at regionals.

The team has reason to believe this year will be even more successful. With a large group of rising sophomores and a core group of experienced upperclassman, the team has their sights set high for the 2011-2012 Oberlin Flying Horsecows. Co-captain Raghav Goyal said, “The team has decided to take a new direction this year than in past years, adding a huge focus on attendance, timeliness, conditioning and intensity. We are excited about our new goals and think that, despite not having the numbers to split A/B, our veteran members are willing and ready to bring new players up to their level of commitment and intensity. It is going to be a good year.”

On October 1st and 2nd, the Flying Horsecows will host their annual home tournament on the North Fields of the Oberlin campus.
