The Frisbee Club’s membership has been soaring this year.
The Frisbee Club’s president this year is junior Colin Browne who has been part of the club for three years and took over from the previous president who graduated.
Browne plans to continue as the club president his senior year.
“The fall of this year had the most people come since I have been here,” said Colin Browne.
This year the club has in a way been revived. They had a great turnout this fall, having 20 members: one freshman, two sophomores, six juniors, and about 11 seniors. The club usually meets in the fall and spring every Wednesday and Friday on the turf where they divide the entire field, depending on how many players or members. Due to fall and spring sports, their time on the field can be limited.
“As president of the club I mostly remind people when we are playing and organize the meetings,” said Browne.
Anyone can show up and throw the Frisbee around with the club. There is no specified requirement to join this year and the club itself is very welcoming to newcomers. It still isn’t too late for anyone to join this year. Even though the club consists of mostly guys, it is also open to our lady Spartans.
“Yes, people can still show up. It’s very casual,” said Browne.
Many club members enjoy their time with the club but sometimes find it hard to show up with sports and AP classes getting in the way.
“The club is lots of fun. I would show up more often if my classes didn’t get in the way too much; it’s hard to keep up with,” said senior Gabriel Hailemichael.
Other members agree to having fun at the club on a nice sunny day after school.
“I went at the beginning of the year during the fall. The weather was nice and it was lots of fun,” said junior Nicholas Johnson.
Johnson, who participated in the club in the fall with the rest of the members, is no longer able to make it because of baseball season.
“I hope more people come out in the future so that we can continue to grow and be part of the West Springfield community,” said Browne.
