Witch’s Hat 2021 has been run and won. 48 people across four teams competed at the UWA Sports Park
Our four teams met up in the morning, came up with a team name and some strategies and then the event was underway. It wasn’t long before the teams started to develop chemistry and evolve their own individual tactics.
The teams were led by 4 team captains. Thank you to Emma Zandi (Spoopy), Daphne Oh (Son of a Witch), Jack Nathan (The Corpse Collective) and Jordan Neill (Spooky Dumpflings) for taking on this role.
Spoopy managed to come out on top over Son of a Witch in a riveting final point, completing a double point hammer to clinch the victory from behind. Spoopy also managed to top the Spirit Leaderboard proving that you can have your cake and eat it, too.
Son of a Witch managed to clinch second place in Spirit, too, only a quarter of a point behind.
The Most Spirited Player award goes to the players who embody the 5 aspects of the Spirit of the Game. These are two players who not only exemplify these qualities, but inspire them in others. Congratulations to the Most Spirited Players Ashley Sin and Jordan Neill.
The final results are as follows
A huge thank you to Serena Ho for volunteering on the day and taking some incredible photos. You can find them all here.
Similarly, thank you to everyone who helped set up and pack down. I was tickled pink when I had finished setting up the presentations only to see that everyone had already come together to complete one of the quickest pack downs I’ve seen. I think this goes to show how much kindness, passion, and spirit the WA Ultimate community has.
