Lazer Dragons Captain and the Light-Up Disc

From the unofficial Duke TIP Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Lazer Dragons is the best Frisbee team at Duke East Term Two. There is a light-up frisbee named Cathy, who doesn't really light-up anymore, that gets passed down along with the title of Lazer Dragon Captain each year. The tradition started in 2007 when the 3rd year Lazer Dragons defeated the 4th year team to represent the students versus the staff. They returned in force the next year, ultimately losing in a controversial OT finish to the staff (including the infamous Daag) but permanently cementing the Lazer Dragon legacy. In 2009, the Lazer Dragons beat staff 15-3 in the Staff-Student Ultimate Game. The Lazer Dragons is technically a 4th year team, but depending on the availability of frisbee-skilled fourth years, is flexible on adding a third year or two. The Lazer Dragons beat EVERYONE, except in 2013 when SWAT beat them in the tournament
