Westborough – In its inaugural season, the Westborough High School Ultimate Frisbee Club finished in second in their division in state competition this spring.

The tournament was held in Northampton where the team made the finals and placed second out of 22 contenders. Along the way during the season and the tournament, Westborough defeated teams like Billerica, Wachusett, Concord-Carlisle and Boston College High School.

“This is the first year of the team’s existence, and we were fortunate to have some very experienced young players along with a number of solid athletes who developed their ultimate skills very quickly,” said Coach Adam Mintz, who was assisted by Coach John Rice.

The team was captained by departing senior Jameel Gammal, Elliot Mintz and Jack Rice.

According to Mintz, with 10 returners next season the team should have a very solid core, but is on the lookout for new players to join as well. The team plays casual coached pickup on Sundays in the fall, with the real season and interscholastic competition occurring in the spring.

Information about the club can be found on the Westborough Recreation Department website, www.westbororec.com.
