The UNG Women's Ultimate Frisbee Club will compete in the USA Ultimate Division III National Championship set for May 18-19 in College Station, Texas.

The University of North Georgia (UNG) Women's Ultimate Frisbee Club won the Southeast regional championship April 13-14 in Statesboro, Georgia.

UNG advanced to the USA Ultimate Division III National Championship set for May 18-19 in College Station, Texas, by defeating Belmont 11-5, Florida Institute of Technology 11-2 and Georgia College & State University 13-7. It is only the third year of existence for the club.

Kay Mallett, a junior from Athens, Georgia, pursuing a nursing degree, is the club president. She called the regional tournament championship "an amazing experience all around."

Mallett said most players learn the sport when they join, and she said the group had a new determination in 2018-19.

"This year we put it in our heads that we're here to win," Mallett said. "And nothing's going to change that from now on."

The club started with six women who left the men's club to form their own program and now has 18 players on its roster. Mallett is grateful for the founding players and former coach Jo Chen, who invested time in the program. UNG alumnus Cameron Nicholes coaches this year's team.
