Cassidy comes from a line of ultimate although she didn’t start playing until the first year of college when her soccer career ended. Over the past four years, she has devoted herself to the game and pushed herself on and off the field. Now, she is a practice player for Philadelphia Surge and leading UPenn Venus into its 2023 postseason along with co-captain Marisa Senkfor. She credits her brother and the other UC Berkley men’s players for making her 1000x times better at frisbee over the covid year with endless games of mini and toss sessions.
As a captain, Cass demonstrates what it is to be a leader on and off the field. She dedicates herself to frisbee even though she is involved in so many different things (shoutout Sparks Dance Company), and her playing both offensively and defensively as well as in handler and cutter positions is fantastic. Not only is this girl a menace on the field but she’s a great leader off the field whether it is sharing thoughtful advice to the other players or her general devotion to the team. She can break a mark like no other and has had some sick D’s this season. We’re lucky to have you Cass.View Nominee Video
