This past weekend Betty B (aka Betty Beast) made their first appearance at Big D Lil d in Denton, Texas. With low numbers of 13, which became 12, which became 11 everyone got a poop ton of playing time and experience!
Saturday was sunny with a never-ending million-bazillion mph wind. Our first and third games against UTD and UDU were close coming up just short when time ran out. Tulane (2nd) and GwU (4th) were fierce competitors and challenged us to compete at a higher level. But Betty didn’t go down easy throwing lots of zone D and getting a couple scores in each game.
Sunday we were able to take advantage of the calm wind and use what was learned Saturday to win two games, against Envy and Rhodekill. Looking good, our handlers worked together to move the disc down the field. That combined with our cutters getting better at timing their cuts Betty scored a total of 17 points Sunday!
This weekend was one of many firsts for everyone! Haley Williams, Hannah Larson and Sam Arganoff captained together for the first time. Flare Crantz, Heather, Mimi and Meggo coached for the first time. All but TWO of Betty Beast are rookies and had their first spring tournament! And of course our first win as a team!!
Are you ready Mid-West Throw Down this coming weekend? Because the Beast has been unleashed! Stay tuned!
