After making it to regionals last spring, Pitt-Johnstown Ultimate Frisbee Club members hope to make it even further this spring, said president and assistant captain Tyler Fleck.

“Last year was the closest we’ve ever made it to nationals. We are putting a lot more effort forth on the field and in things such as fundraising to help us reach our goal of nationals,” said Fleck.

“This (spring) is when tournaments matter the most for us because winning United States Ultimate-sanctioned games help us progress to the level we want to be for conference championships and regional championships.”

“We practice Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays in the Wellness Center from 4-6 p.m. and do conditioning on Sunday nights at 9 p.m.,” said Fleck.

“Katrin Wolfe (Wellness Center director) has been very supportive, giving us the opportunity to practice indoors.”

Fleck said the team has faced problems in terms of costs this year.

“We were only allocated around 50 percent of what we requested from student government for the year,” said Fleck.

“Our overall goal of fundraising $1,000 is coming into sight.”

Fleck said the team hopes to host a tournament this spring.
