Rice Women’s Ultimate first appeared on the scene in 1997. The team was originally known as “Miss Red,” then “Catch Her on the Fly,” and then finally “Torque.” When Torque first entered the Division III scene in the 2013-2014 season, the team was led by a few superstars but still developed a deep sideline and made use of its rookies. This combination led them to quick success, clinching back-to-back championships in 2014 and 2015. The next season, Torque fought all the way to the finals and came in second after a hard-fought ultimate point. Though Torque didn’t qualify for Nationals the next year, the team continued to grow – altogether and individually – recruiting and developing many first-time ultimate players to maintain that deep sideline and reliable set of rookies. This year, with a rookie-majority roster, Torque surprised many after going undefeated in the 2018 D-III South Central Regional Championships. Now, Torque is finally back in the Nationals field and more ready than ever to make waves in the D-III ultimate community.
