DC Scandal Seeded #1 at International Ultimate Tournament

Washington, DC's elite women's ultimate team, Scandal, is seeded #1 IN THE WORLD at the 2014 World Ultimate Club Championships (WUCC). The multi-day, international WUCC tournament is hosted from August 2 - 9 in Lecco, Italy.

Scandal is ranked at the top as a result of winning the 2013 USA Ultimate Championship in October 2013. Since then, Mayor Gray proclaimed it "SCANDAL WOMEN'S ULTIMATE FRISBEE TEAM DAY" and the D.C. Council has passed a resolution recognizing the achievement by this DC sports team.
