VERSAILLES — The ultimate frisbee tradition continued on its 41st year at Poultry Days this year. The ultimate frisbee tournament took place at Heritage Park all day June 10 and June 11.

Organized by Oshadega, the tournament had 32 teams compete for a tournament title. Teams from all over traveled to Versailles to play in the tournament. Across the 32 teams, 14 states were represented along with some teams from Canada.

The festivities didn’t stop at the tournament. From the Premier Ultimate League, a professional women’s ultimate frisbee league, the Columbus Pride took on the Atlanta Soul in their last regular season match at the track on June 10.

It was a full crowd at the game with the bleachers full of fans. Atlanta took the win, 23-19, in a back and forth game.

At halftime of the game, the ultimate frisbee cool hand egg eating contest took place. Through the egg eating contest, Oshadega raises money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Since 2011, they have raised over $40,000.

The festivities wrapped up on June 11 as a champion was crowned in the pouring rain.
