Some Big Checks from Alex Trebek at the Big Payback

This past weekend was a great way to start the fall semester. What happened, you ask? Tribe and Wreck combined forces to create the ultimate Ultimate team: What is Trebek’s Mustache? You see, Tribe + Wreck = Trebek. And what could possibly be better than the mustache of Alex Trebek himself?

Alex, we’ll take Winning for $1000. (And by winning I mean winning at being awesome.)

The tournament was in Augusta, Georgia. Trebek placed 5th among 17 teams (breaking seed!) and 1st place in best photoshoots (see below for proof).

MVP of the weekend went to Prerana Malla for always being open and pretty much catching everything that came her way. Plays of the Day, awarded on Sunday, went to Cate Woodhurst, for an incredible catch with three others also going for the disc, and Taylor Hartman, for an endzone D with two other opposing players. Also, general awesomeness to Lex for going ham all day erryday and getting a D on the first pass off the pull. Thanks to Johnny for coaching and Lily Ponitz, who organized this whole shin-dig.

Also, shout out to the car that had such a good bonding experience on the way back that they drove past Atlanta and didn’t realize it until 20 minutes away from the Alabama border. So much love.
