Ultimate Frisbee

Ultimate Frisbee is a sport on the rise at Riccarton High School! This year we had 3 teams competing at the South Island Secondary Schools Ultimate Frisbee tournament held at Hagley Park. Our Senior girls and our junior mixed team finished 2nd and our senior boys placed 3rd. An outstanding accomplishment for our teams! The Senior girls were also awarded the “Spirit” award which is a prestigious award that underpins the integrity of the self-reffed sport . Congratulations to all of those involved for being true ambassadors of the Riccarton Way.
