Mary is one of the true overall disc athletes, with a deep love of Freestyle and Ultimate Frisbee, and an unsurpassable desire to play and an undying commitment to the growth of disc sports.

Her strenuous and athletic style of play have placed her as a top player in the sport for over 20 years. She is a three-time Women's World Champion (with Lisa Hunrichs in 1994, 1997, & 2000), and 2001 Mixed Pairs champion (with Dan Yarnell). And... these titles only demonstrate a small part of her disc-ability!

Mary is able to pull off the big moves in competition with solid combos and graceful (though difficult) catches, and she delights in the shared joy of the "mob-op" in any group jam, bringing her tenacious style and encouraging spirit to every jam.

As an Ultimate competitor, Mary served as captain of several women's and co-ed teams, capping her career as a key player with Seattle's "Women on the Verge", 1997 World Ultimate Champions. (In 1997, Mary won both freestyle and Ultimate titles in the same weekend!) She has consistently medaled at numerous overall disc events such as the World Flying Disc Federation (WFDF) championship and the U.S. Open, regularly placing well in distance throwing, discathon, and freestyle.

Mary's incredible stamina, generosity, and patience serve as an inspiration in the world of disc sports.


She has served as Tournament Director for numerous freestyle and ultimate competitions, but she is especially loved and acclaimed for her drive and determination to encourage youth athletes, introducing hundreds of students to disc sports over the course of her career.
