Bella Donna

Team Biography

Bella Donna is UW-Madison’s premiere team that competes regularly in the North Central Region and around the country. Bella has seen the national D-I College Championships numerous times. The team is comprised of freshmen to graduate students.

Atropa belladonna, better known as Deadly Nightshade, is a poisonous plant from which the team has derived their name. The plant has a history of use as a medicine, cosmetic and poison. The name “bella donna” is derived from Italian and means “beautiful woman” because the herb was used in eye-drops by women to dilate the pupils of the eyes to make them appear seductive.

Bella Donna Love: The love of ultimate. The love of the team.
