Name: Pamela Shwayri (aka Pam) Number: 77 Position: Cutler (Hatter? Hutter? Candler?) Celebrity Twin: Olaf Superpower: Transmits Information on the Field via Head-Nod Major: Industrial Engineering Everyone say hi to Pam. Like her twinsie Olaf, you can find Pam making everyone's day brighter. Her lexicon is 75% references to a Disney movie, HIMYM, Friends, asdf, etc... and 25% super complicated engineering stuff. On the field, Ms. Shwayri does it all; she cuts and handles like a boss. Pam is leaving us in the spring, and we're sad, but proud of her. Love you Pam!
Name: Megan Ramsey (aka Ramsey, Ram, Mary Poppins) Number: 5 Superpower: Taking Care of Everyone Often Found: Yelling "UP!" Memorable Quote: "If you're white, put on sunscreen!" Signature Move: Taking a deep breath with Frisbee Meet Megan Ramsey, the most graceful and vocal player on Wreck. You'll always see her stepping around her defender and communicating to her cutters with graceful fakes that honestly look like they were choreographed by Balanchine. Ramsey is easy to identify because you can always hear her helping out by yelling "up" and helping out us youngsters on the sideline. We're so incredibly proud of Megan who graduated in the Fall of 2016 with a degree in Industrial and Systems Engineering. She plans to continue playing ultimate in the Metro Atlanta area. Way to go girl!!!
My ancestor Alexander the Great would be proud of Wreck’s victory in Athens.
Alexander, as well as the rest of the crew Genghis, DJ Khaled, and Charlemagne, can confirm that the key to winning every battle is a huge energetic sideline, and watching the disc all the way into your hands.
Highlights from the tournament are too many to list, but a few are
- the one point where Ollie, Taylor and Jenny laid out in succession
- a full rookie (+1) lineup breaking against Georgia
- Emma caught a disc in the end-zone and didn’t look confused
- Maria laid out for that trash dishy I tossed her (thank you)
- Sam’s fire on the field and on the twitter
- LJ trashing every defender they put on her
- Those beer glasses they gave us for winning
- Every one of Ashley’s throws (glad to have her back!)
- Andy’s jersey #Wreckresent
- All the amazing women we played with and played against are a highlight! Love you all so much ♥
So yeah! We add another spikeball set to the empire and wrap up our fall tournaments with a KAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAABOOM!
Wreck showed up to Tuscaloosa armed with tents and Heavenly Donuts and turned up the heat at the Gulf Coast Warm-Up.
Since this tournament was unsanctioned, we were able to bring 2 teams to give everyone a ton of playing time, and to be able to do so we brought back some older players. All the rookies and even the returners learned a lot from the experience that Jackie, Pre, and Alyx brought to the field — I know I forsure did!
Both teams went home the first day undefeated, and the next day we came back and played each other in the true finals which was the best game of the tournament. Wreck was able to both have fun and play some super intense ultimate and everyone had an amazing game.
With the support of Tyrannosaurus X, Rex Y was able to beat the Ole Miss Landsharks in the fake finals to take the SpikeBall set. What. A. Tournament.
MVPs of Tyrannosaurus X were Alyx for her godly backhands and incredible cutting, and Ollie for being a rookie star.
MVPs of Rex Y were Alli Wong for her leadership as a handler and Maria Saito for them BREAKTHROWS.
Congrats to the MVPs and to the teams for a great tourney. Special thanks to our beloved coaches Maddy, Anna, and Richard. I love y’all all so much!
This weekend was an exciting time for Wreck. Not only did we compete and win the rookie roundup, but we finally got to see the amazing progress our rookies have made already! Everyone got plenty of playing time and everyone had an incredible tournament. So many highlights!
From layouts to siiiiiiiick handblocks, our rookies stole the show. So proud *wipes away tear*. For the full recap of the games we played, check out our twitter feed (can be found here).
It was hot, but we were hotter.
I skated over this, but WE WON OUR FIRST TOURNAMENT! Congrats to every girl on the team for leaving it all on the field, and supporting the girls that were playing. We go up from here guys!

Hello all, and welcome to the Georgia Tech Wreck Ultimate Frisbee webpage.
I thought I would take a second to introduce myself, as I will be the web guru for the 2016-2017 season. My name is Danae Argyropoulou and I am a 2nd year Biomedical Engineering student. I joined Wreck as a freshman last year having barely thrown a frisbee before, and I consider that one of the best decisions of my life.
I’m glad you’ve read this far, and I want to invite you to try out Wreck as well! No prior frisbee experience is necessary, trust me. Wreck will teach you all you need to know.
Come join us at our first practice on August 25 9-11pm, and sign up for our mailing list by emailing Emily Winder (email@example.com) or Bridget Nabb (firstname.lastname@example.org) and they will add you immediately!
I know I speak for all returning Wreckies when I say I can’t wait to meet you all!
If you are here looking at this I am going to assume you are interested in playing Ultimate Frisbee at Georgia Tech. We are so excited to have you come out and meet the team and possibly join for the year! The most important thing is that you are interested and willing to learn. No previous experience is needed. You don’t even need to know how to throw a frisbee. We will teach you everything you need to know!
If you went to FASET and signed up for our mailing list, you will receive an email before classes start inviting you out to our first practice.
If you have not been added to our mailing list, please email Ashley Brown (email@example.com) and she will add you immediately!
Practice starts the first Wednesday of the semester and we are so excited to meet all of you!
Cate Woodhurst made 1st Team All-Region, an incredible accomplishment!
2 of our rookies this year, Megan Yang and Aimee Gerold, made the All-Freshman team in the Southeast.
So proud and happy to have our Wreck Ladies representing the Southeast!
2014-2015 Series Results
