South Tampa Fire Ants win Florida State High School Ultimate Frisbee Championship

TAMPA — The South Tampa Fire Ants recently beat out eight other high school teams, from as far away as Miami and Jacksonville, to win the Florida State High School Ultimate Frisbee Championship.

The Fire Ants, representing Plant High School, are made up of primarily Plant and Robinson High students but also include students from Berkeley Prep and Dunedin High, as well as two players from Wilson and Coleman middle schools, according to Steve Widoff, one of the team's coaches.

This year's state tournament, April 28, was only Florida's second for high school Frisbee players. Ultimate Frisbee mixes the pace and aerobic demands of soccer, the strategies and defense marking of basketball and the scoring and the passing/receiving known in football, Widoff said.
