New sport opportunity offered to students

By Elle Fleenor

In the wave of many new sports and clubs at SHS, ultimate frisbee has been added and is open for students to join. According to coach Brandon Jerrell, there have been about 14 students attending practices, but he expects to have about 20 on the team.

Jerrell said he decided to start the club because of the great amount of interest that he has seen in ultimate frisbee and how he wishes he would have had the opportunity to participate in a sport like this when he was in high school.

“There were a lot of kids interested in it and asked me about it. I thought if there is interest and if kids will enjoy it, let’s do it,” said Jerrell.

As of now, the team is preparing for all of the upcoming scrimmages and games. Jerrell said that they have been spending their practices working on throwing, catching, defense and zone defense.

The team’s first scrimmage against New Albany which will be held at home on April 26 at 6 p.m.

Although practices have already started, students are still welcome to join.

According to Jerrell, the team is a “club in name, sport in action”. Therefore, a physical on file is required. This club is open to all students both boys and girls. For any students wanting to participate, practices are held at the front lawn of the high school Mondays and Tuesdays from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m., Wednesdays from after school until 5 p.m. and there will either be a practice or scrimmage on Fridays from 6 to 8.
