Team Biography

The UW-Madison Ultimate Frisbee Club was founded in 1977. The team first qualified for Nationals in 1990, finishing seventh. In the spring of 1994, the “Hodags” team name was adopted. What is a Hodag you may ask? With the head of an ox, feet of a bear, back of a dinosaur and tail of an alligator – the Hodag is a ferocious beast that resides in the Northwoods of Wisconsin. Since 2001, the Hodags have earned three national titles and five finals appearances. The Hodags have qualified for Nationals every year since 2000. This year, the team is comprised of a large class of fifth- year seniors and is led by two fifth-year captains – Ross Barker and Avery Johnson.
