Ultimate Frisbee National Champions
Let’s hear it for another national championship, this one for the College’s D-1 women’s ultimate frisbee team — Princess Layout. An alumnus from the ‘80’s follows the team closely and sent in a report:
After your posts on our rugby teams’ success, I thought you should alert your readers to Dartmouth’s most successful team this year, Dartmouth Princess Layout. They were utterly dominant all year, and then won the D1 national championship over Memorial Day weekend, destroying Notre Dame, Florida, Michigan, Stanford, and then obliterating Texas in the final. The final was televised live on ESPN; we were able to watch it live while on holiday in Zurich. Here is the full report:
Not only that, but playmaker Angela Zhu ‘17 won the Callahan Award (given to the Most Valuable Player in Women’s’ D1 by the vote of her peers) and teammate Jaclyn Verzuh ‘19 won Ultiworld’s Player of the Year Award. Verzuh is actually already one of the top ultimate players in the world. In addition, Caitlyn Lee ‘19 was voted Breakout Player of the Year as a rising star in the making.
Dartmouth Ultimate began in the mid-70s. There are now more than 700 college teams at both the D1 and D3 levels. Both the men and the women have had deep runs at the D1 national tournament against schools ten times Dartmouth’s size, but never before have they achieved this level of success!
Addendum: Ultiworld had a special mention for a great play: Jaclyn Verzuh’s Absurd Layout Catch In The National Final.
Addendum: Here is the College’s account of the victory.

When Love Beckoned in 52nd Street
We were at San Francisco’s BIX last evening, enjoying prosecco, cheese, and a bit of music. A full year of inhabitation in Northern California has unraveled to me no decent venue for proper lounging, but…

D Afraid of a Little Competish
So our colleague and Dartblog writer Joe Asch informed me that the D has rejected our cunning advertising campaign. Uh-oh. The Dartmouth is widely known as a breeding ground for instant New York Times successes,…

How Regents Should Reign
As Dartmouth alumni proceed through the legal hoops necessary to defuse a Board-packing plan—which put in unhappy desuetude an historic 1891 Agreement between alumni and the College guaranteeing a half-democratically-elected Board of Trustees—it strikes one…
