We are the Whitman College Womxn's D1 ultimate frisbee team, commonly known as “The Sweets”. We live in the beautiful town of Walla Walla, Washington, famous for growing wheat and Walla Walla sweet onions. The agriculture and beauty of the Walla Walla valley have inspired our team name and many onion related cheers.
The Sweets are a group of strong, independent, goofy womxn who love to support each other, eat food together, and play frisbee. Team activities include frolicking in the wheat fields, rock climbing, eating onions (yum), potlucks, Friday pickup at 4:20 with the men’s team, picnicking in the park, camping, working out (both virtually and in person!) and, of course, playing frisbee.
The Sweets are a great group of gals to compete with because we are a fun lovin’ bunch of dedicated, goofy gals that love to support each other both on and off the field. We are a unique team nestled in the PNW that is composed of all experience levels of ultimate. Many of our players are new to the game, while others have years of experience. Don’t be shy, though - we love to welcome all who are interested!
During our regular season, the Sweets travel to fun tournaments like Stanford Invite, Presidents Day Invite, and Northwest Challenge, while in the postseason, we play in the D1 Big Sky Section, meaning we get to face off against great competition from teams like Utah and BYU. Then, we join the greater Northwest Region to play Oregon, Western Washington, University of Washington, and more.
