Location: Albert Park, Melbourne, Australia
Team name: Flaming Carrot (orange)
Finishing postion: 2nd
This was my first ever tournament, and was a fantastic introduction to the larger world of ultimate frisbee. I struggled with my knee injury for most of the tournament, but I kept going on the field even when I shouldn't have. My team was very strong, and we went through to the final undefeated. Alanna was out of the final due to a stuffed ankle. We lost the final to Kenny Shepherd's team in what many say was the best Melbourne Hat final they've seen. The 17 points cap game went to 16 all and we finally lost 18-16.
