Misfit Ultimate's annual Misfit Cup wrapped up after a gloomy weekend at the Burnaby Lake Sports Complex, but the competition was anything but dreary.
On June 23 and 24, teams from all corners of the Lower Mainland competed against each other in an early season tournament that showcased the U19 teams who would be competing in July for a spot in August at the Canadian Ultimate Championships in Brampton, Ontario. The youth ultimate programs Bonfire (North Vancouver), Savage (Richmond), Vortex (Surrey/Delta), and our very own Misfit (Vancouver) all came together for the tournament, bringing altogether a total of 30 teams that competed in Open and Women's divisions.
What makes the Misfit Cup so special every year is that the teams who play with the most Spirit of the Game, as voted upon by their opponents, are the ones who receive the honour of having their names engraved upon the cup. This year, we were proud to award the cup to two of our own teams, Havoc (Women's) and Vanguard (Open).
Eclipse (Women's) defeated Vortex and Vortex (Open) edged out Eclipse to come atop their respective divisions.
A big thank you to our tournament director, program coordinators, volunteers, and all the coaches and athletes for making Misfit Cup 2018 such a success. We can't wait to see you all next year!
