The 'Ultimate' Opportunity

For the second time in four years, the Colorado College women's ultimate frisbee team will compete for a national championship over Memorial Day Weekend.

Fifth-seeded Lysistrata's Tools, also known as Strata, upset the University of Texas and Texas A&M in Tulsa, Okla., last weekend to finish as regional runner-up and emerge as one of 20 Division I squads in the country to qualify for nationals later this month in Cincinnati, Ohio.

CC is one of only two small liberal arts institutions to earn a berth in for the tournament, where Strata will join Carleton College in competition against large state schools such as University of Michigan, University of Oregon and University of Washington.

Strata finished seventh nationally in a previous appearance in 2011.

Senior Elizabeth "Lisi" Lorhe, one of the team's tri-captains with classmate Christina Maruyama and junior Maggie Bailey, caught the winning pass in Sunday's victory over Texas. Lorhe is a nominee for the 2014 Callahan Award, which recognizes the top female college ultimate player in the country based on talent, sportsmanship, and leadership.
