Alex Barnett


Alex’s ultimate career began as a first-year true rookie on UNC Pleiades in the fall of 2017. Since then, she worked diligently to improve her skills and has become a leader both on and off the field, captaining Pleiades in 2021 and 2022. Not only does she have incredible range on the field beginning as a D-line cutter and developing into center O-line handler, but she is also the epitome of a kind, supportive teammate. Nothing makes Alex light up like playing frisbee and seeing her teammates succeed.

Additionally, when not playing ultimate herself, Alex demonstrates service to the ultimate community through a wide variety of coaching positions including East Chapel Hill High school, Triangle Americorps coaching, and as a Carolina Flight School coach. Beyond serving the greater Triangle Ultimate community, Alex works hard to help her teammates improve through diligent, thoughtful feedback and individual throwing sessions. Pleiades is grateful to have Alex as a friend and teammate. We are honored to have her represent our team as our 2023 Callahan nominee.
