In 2001, the women of Northeastern’s ultimate scene decided the time had come to create a separate women’s team – the Valkyries. The original founders of the team took this name from Norse mythology in which Valkyries are the “choosers of the fallen” and decide which warriors may die in battle and who among them are worthy of the afterlife. Valkyries are associated with fairness and bravery, and they are a symbol of female power and strength.
We are proud to continue the legacy of the amazing women who have represented the Northeastern Valkyries over the past 18 seasons. The Valkyries wear #8 on our jerseys in loving memory of 2009 Alumna, Stephanie Barker, who left us in 2013.
Since 2001, the program has seen a tremendous amount of growth, qualifying for Nationals for the first time in 2008. This year marks our fifth visit to Nationals, but first since 2014, meaning we have an entire roster of first-time competitors on this stage! We are fierce competitors ready to return to Texas and flex our hard work and grit competing against some of the best teams in the country. Fly Valks fly!
