Most recent champions:
In a controversial move that will be debated for many years to come, Team Odd Job (Captain Ben Harris ’15), who finished second in Division I in 2011, switched to Division II for the 2012 season. Unremarkably, Odd Job cruised through the regular season with a 5-0 record, and handedly beat Huckosauruses in the Division II final. The Division I champions, Sweet Pete and the Fly Fifteen, finished off their 2012 campaign with a 5-0 record. Sweet Pete, who were also the Division I champions of 2011, were led by club player Pete Osseward ’12. Sweet Pete and the Fly Fifteen beat the Pussycatfeathers in the Division I final.
Competition and atmosphere:
IM ultimate Frisbee is a self-sufficient intramural sport. Players lay out the dimensions of the field with shoes, water bottles, or cones and during the game they call their own fouls. Teams compete against each other until one team reaches 13 points and wins by at least two points. Each team consists of up to three club players but is only allowed up to two male club players. IM ultimate gives club players a chance to play freely with their friends who aren’t on the club team. Many teams are formed in students’ first years at Whitman and stick together throughout their four years here on campus.
