Phoenix Has Risen 2017 has once again come and gone, with one of the best played finals we've seen in recent years.
Congratulations to Sublime who took home the championship title over Sublime Ultimate Club. Little Ray of Sunshine came away with the bronze with a win over Disc Graceful and Sublime were named Spirit of the Game Winners.
Once again we saw the return of Bunbury Ultimate's "Butter Monkeys", who displayed some of their best ultimate so far, but unfortunately no Esperance or Broome this year.
Our MVPs were: Alicia Lim (Bullisko) and Aiden Deering (Curtinnn). This year we kept statistics (Goals and Assists) the winners were: Leighton Cotter (assists, Bullisko) and Ebony Taylor (Goals, Sublime).
A total of 140 players across the 10 teams competed over the weekend as it returned to the Perth metropolitan area, after last years appareance in the City of Mandurah.
A Special thanks to Rubixwear for donating our MVP, Stat Winner prizes and a MASSIVE THANK YOU to all the amazing staff and volunteers who worked tirelessly in the lead up and during the event. The championship also included our Game Advisors; Steve Baker & Kristofer Wright who did a fantastic job.
