How long have you been playing Quidditch? 1 year

What made you join the team? I was friends with Alex. You literally can’t say no to her.

Favorite Quidditch moment: Threw a bludger cross pitch and hit the back of an opposing beater’s broom so she couldn’t beat :D

Worst/most memorable injury: 1st play against UR – Face shot.  2nd play against UR – Nut shot.  I was out for a while.

Future Goals: Take my experience to whatever team I’ll be playing with next year and have fun with it.

A piece of advice to fellow players, or people new to Quidditch: Have fun with it, that’s the most important thing.  So long as you’re working with your team, communicating well, you will not do poorly, I promise.

The Hippogriffs had three wonderful games against Jefferson’s Army today, and ended their first season with a win! We would like to give an enormous thank you to everyone, particularly the University of Richmond Quidditch team, for helping to make our own team what it is today. They gave us our first hoops and brooms and the push we needed to make this season possible. Thank you to everyone else who supported us this year!

The Hippogriffs had a fantastic time at the River City Invitational this weekend! Sadly, we didn’t make it to bracket play, but we had three awesome games! We’ve improved so much since our first few games and we’re still learning more every day. A big thanks to all the teams who participated for making it such a fun experience! We hope to play you again soon!
