Knox students and alumni competed with Ultimate teams from around the region at the 2011 Natalie Veneziano Memorial Ultimate Tournament, February 19-20 at Knox College. The event is named in memory of Natalie Veneziano, a 1998 Knox graduate and Ultimate player who died of leukemia in 2004. The Galesburg Register-Mail dubbed the sport "part football, part basketball and part-soccer," and spoke with the event organizer, David Kurian '10. "It's definitely the most popular club sport (at Knox)," Kurian told the newspaper.
Above and below, the alumni team in action and warm-up. Above right, Rob Clark '95, shows off his throwback jersey -- the one that he wore when he founded the club in 1992.
