Alpha Phi holds Frisbee tournament
The Alpha Phi sorority raised about $1,000 at its second annual ultimate Frisbee tournament, “Phisbee,” Saturday afternoon.
Vice President of Marketing for Alpha Phi Jessica Altschul said nine fraternities donated $75 to participate in the three-hour competition at 23rd Street and Constitution Avenue. Two other fraternities did not participate but donated money. All contributions will go to the Alpha Phi Foundation, which supports programs in women’s cardiac care and women’s leadership.
“Phisbee” teams consisted of seven to 12 fraternity members, playing a combined total of eight games. About 50 Alpha Phi members refereed and coached.
“The (Alpha Phi coaches) went to the houses in the morning and made them breakfast or brought them bagels and then escorted them to the field,” Altschul said.
In the championship game, Beta Theta Pi defeated Lambda Chi Alpha. Altschul said several members of GW’s Ultimate Frisbee team attended the event and recruited a few fraternity members.
Altschul said each team received a painted frisbee for its house. Alpha Phi members will throw Beta Theta Pi a “Phiesta,” cooking members a Mexican dinner.
“It got really competitive, but I think everyone had a really good time,” Altschul said.
