Every year during Homecoming Weekend, alumni of Elizabethtown College’s ultimate frisbee team, the Jelly Swatters, come back to Brinser Field to play current members of the team.
It was a close game going into the half with the alumni up by four. The current members of the team fought back hard in the second half, but the alumni came out on top, besting the current Jelly Swatters 15-10.
Sophomore Frank Coster has been a member of the Jelly Swatters for two years. “The game was great,” Coster said. “This year’s alumni turnout was the largest it has ever been.”
The Jelly Swatters practice every day on Brinser Field from 4:00-5:30 p.m. They compete against other colleges in tournaments and play against other schools in the area like Franklin & Marshall College and Lebanon Valley College.
“The best part is the family connection we have from playing frisbee together,” Coster said. He is looking forward to his next few years playing frisbee for the Jelly Swatters and hopes the current members will be able to defeat the alumni next Homecoming Weekend.
