Yeehaw was formed by Austin Ultimate player Colleen Kepner in 2014, with assistance from former teammates, opponent and friends Catherine Belgarde Shirvell and Amber Abel Sturrock in Houston. Collaborating across cities, they rallied players from all over Texas to attend the Masters Championships in nostalgic Sarasota, Fla. that summer. After its inaugural year, Yeehaw reunited to play together in 2015. After a two-year break in action, Yeehaw returned last year under the leadership of Suzanne Lacy out of Austin, in collaboration with Catherine Belgarde Shirvell of Houston. Suzanne and Cat continue to lead Yeehaw this year in another Masters Championships tournament. Wiith a diverse set of playing backgrounds, Yeehaw continues to be a group of ladies from across Texas, as well as a few from elsewhere in the region (including New Mexico and Arkansas). We’re happy to be playing in Colorado this year and looking forward to another incredible journey this year in the world of masters ultimate.
At the 2019 USA Ultimate Masters Championships, the Ultimate Foundation ran a fundraising contest among all of the competing teams. The team that raised the most money by the end of the last round on Saturday earned bragging rights and customized Ultimate Foundation glass sports mugs.
The contest is now closed, but you can still donate to the Ultimate Foundation by supporting your team below, or by donating on the Ultimate Foundation's webpage.
