In the dry, thin air of central Colorado, where the vast plains come to an abrupt end in the beautiful sagebrush foothills of the Rockies, you can hear echoes of 25 Kali players tossing and dancing in the wind. With each slapping pancake catch, reverberations of resilience and hunger for the disc may be heard from miles away. In the moments when the disc settles, these inclusive women congregate and fully embrace the Kali weird. Their half times consist of grind lines galore and the bellowing of Ariana Grande’s latest lyrics. They are a family, with unconditional love and support for each other on and off the field.
After tying for third in the nation in 2010, Kali has been on the hunt for a title, qualifying for Nationals the past six years in a row. A 13th-place finish in 2014 followed by two fifth-place finishes in 2015 and 2016, a third-place finish in 2017 and a finals appearance in 2018 have left them wanting more. Each tournament, each game, each point, they are dedicated to fighting for more time together. The 2019 D-I College Championships will be no different. We believe in ourselves. We believe in this team.
