Team enjoy ultimate success
A TOWNSVILLE ultimate championships team was placed in the top five in Australia after a national competition.
Ultimate is a non- contact team sport played with a frisbee and is played in more than 30 countries worldwide. It combines elements of netball, touch football, and gridiron.
The local social league has 150 members and the advanced league has 50 members.
Captain Rey Arteaga said he was very pleased with the outcome.
“Throughout the season we weren’t actually focused on winning, we developed the players individually,” he said.
“It’s a fantastic result and shows our development paid off.”
Mr Arteaga said the team played well because of the tight social bonds and respect between members.
“We see each other three to four times a week. We have a social league club and we also run our competitive league,” he said.
“We hold social events and go out together, so we’re definitely friends, checking on each other and making sure they’re OK.”
