Four 2Ls attend national disc golf championship
For the first time in history the University of Oregon will be fielding a complete men’s and women’s team in the National Collegiate Disc Golf Championship taking place April 16th-19th at the Hippodrome Disc Golf Complex in North Augusta, SC. Playing in the championship are four Oregon Law 2L students, Cory Higdon, Sarah Henderson, Scott Morrow, and Paul Fraser.
This year the University of Oregon is sending an “A Team” (National Championship Flight) and a “B Team” (First Flight Championship Flight) as well as a women’s team. The University of Oregon’s presence is significant this year, especially as they are the fourth school in history to ever field a full women’s team at the championship.
Sarah Henderson serves as captain of the women’s team, and also took 4th in the women’s individual competition last year. Henderson will be leading the women’s team this year at the championship as the women are seeded third and the men are seeded 15th going into the competition.
The team practices twice a week for one hour at the Alton Baker Disc Golf Course, weather permitting. Balancing law school and a sport can be challenging, but Paul Fraser excels at both. “Time management is crucial. I am juggling a full time job (called law school) and dating a very demanding girlfriend (the disc golf club), so ability to successfully manage all of my responsibilities is a very challenging endeavor,” says Fraser.
