Kirkland native Carly Campana recently helped the United States women’s national team notch the gold medal at the 2019 World Under-24 Ultimate Championships in Heidelberg, Germany. The U.S. beat Japan, 15-9, in the final.
In the final on game point, Campana scored the bookends goal to give her team the gold.
Ultimate is a non-contact sport during which points are scored when a team catches the disc in its opponent’s end zone.
In a 2018 Reporter story when Campana was named to the U.S. Junior National women’s under-20 ultimate squad for the second consecutive year, she said about the sport: “Ultimate is a really great game. Plus, the ultimate community in Seattle is so genuine, supportive and inspiring. I enjoy playing so much because of the people I’ve met through this sport.”
