    Ultimate Frisbee

     Ultimate Frisbee, according to several faculty and alumni accounts, has been a relevant part of Saint Vincent Campus culture since the sport’s inception in the 1970’s. The aspects of the game such as companionship, individual skill and teamwork have enriched the lives of Saint Vincent students ever since. In lieu of the national growth of Ultimate as an intercollegiate competitive sport and the evolution of the SVC student body, the new generation of Bearcats has endeavored to elevate the standard of excellence set by previous Bearcat Ultimate players and pit Saint Vincent’s best against those of other institutions. Saint Vincent College has since become known as a gracious host of three tournaments per academic year, and a welcomed participant in several all-weekend tournaments hosted by other institutions.
