Mary Presecan and Reid Smith founded the University of Texas Women’s Ultimate Frisbee Club in the spring semester of 2000. During that semester, the twice-a-week practices drew perhaps 10 players regularly, making a full scrimmage of seven-on-seven impossible. We played in one tournament that semester, Centex. When we were pressed to come up with a team name, we adopted the name “Lady Marmalade,” in part because marmalade was the required color orange, and also because we all dug the Labelle version of that song. In 2003, we changed our name to Melee.
