TSC Weekend Round Up: Jan 27-28

This past weekend showcased the relentless spirit of TSC teams as they embarked on competitions across different arenas. From hard-fought battles on the court to exhilarating races down the slopes, our athletes delivered commendable performances, setting the stage for an exciting season ahead.

Men’s Ultimate

UBC Men’s Ultimate headed down to California this weekend for the annual Santa Barbara Invite. The weather was beautiful and the vibes were immaculate. We were seeded 9th which put us second in our pool and we were excited to see the talent that was going to this tournament. We started off the day a little rusty still feeling the Christmas break in us but we were able to pull off winning three out of our four games. Which left us finishing second in our pool but pushed us through to bracket play. The next day we cruised through pre-quarters but got halted by our region rivals Oregon Ego and they sent us down to the fifth place bracket where we took out Washington and Utah and ended up finishing 5th.With a better result than last year, the T-birds were cooking and super ecstatic about our result. The rookies had a taste of what real college ultimate was and it has them hunting for more. Catch us in two weeks back down in San Diego for Presidents Day.

Alpine Skiing

This weekend, UBC Alpine competed in Kellog, ID at Silver Mountain at the second qualifier in the NWCSC. Congratulations to our Women’s team for their second-place overall placement on both days and to our Men’s team for placing fourth overall on the second day. Huge shout out to all of our new racers, especially Coco Robertson, Bella Bay, Audrey Gillenwater, Bea Mick, Phillip D’Andrea, and Samuel Agerskov for their placements in the top 15 over the two race days. Shout out to Marko Smitran for his 7th place win on Sunday and Coco Robertson for her 2nd place win on both days! Also, a huge shout out to our new athletes Nina Steyn, Anna Saskia Mundt, and Ava Morris on their first race with the team. Despite rainy conditions and zero gate training, our teams had a very successful turnout and are excited to compete next weekend at Lookout Pass!


The UBC Equestrian Team recently concluded its latest competition, and what a ride it was! Over the past weekend, the team packed their bags and headed down to Spokane, Washington to partake in the Double Hunt Seat Show hosted by Washington State University. The first half of the day went smoothly, with many of our riders laying down solid rounds and racking up points for UBC. As the show went on, the team remained strong, with Justine claiming Highpoint and Madi Reserve Highpoint. Although the degree of success achieved in the first show did not carry over to this one, the extent of learning and team bonding remained equally significant. After all, it is challenges that create the most opportunities for improvement. This show truly portrayed the dedication our team had for the sport, for each other, and for UBC. The next show is coming up real fast, on the following weekend at Lynden, Washington. Wish us luck!

Nordic Skiing 

15 of our athletes crushed The Cascade Cup in Manning Park, BC. Parker Munroe won the 30km skate race with Paige coming in 2d in the female category. Erika and Fiona both came top 3 in the 30k classic in the female category

Women’s Tennis

This past weekend, the UBC Women’s Tennis Team competed in regionals against UVic and SFU. After some intense matches, the team took the W with a 5-2 win against SFU, and a 7-0 win against UVic!! This win means the team advances to Westerns where they will compete for a spot in Nationals! Special shoutout to our rookies who competed in their first official matches!

Womens Ultimate

This weekend, the birds flew down to sunny California for their first sanctioned tournament of the season, the team’s first time competing at Santa Barbara Invite. Going into the tournament, this team was ranked first and finished Day 1 with decisive wins against UC Berkeley, Utah, and UC San Diego. Day 2 brought on a challenging semi-finals game against Carleton. Down 2 points at half, we finished the game with a universe point win to take us to finals against University of Oregon, where we secured a first place win. This finish sets our team up well for our next sanctioned tournament in March at Stanford Invite. With a strong start to the season, we were able to highlight the depth of our team and showcase the skills of our rookies at this tournament.
