Investigation: Founding Seattle Sockeye

What year was Seattle Sockeye founded?
Trying to find out a definitive answer was more complicated than swimming upstream.

Per Sockeye's Wikipedia page and Facebook: 1990.
Listed in Sockeye's Twitter bio: 1991.

Per Sockeye's team bio on USA Ultimate's Triple Crown Tour portal: 1993

According to Sockeye's website: 1994.

Data for this tweet was sourced from USA Ultimate National Championships site.

With conflicting data, the best answer might be: Seattle Sockeye was founded in the early 1990's.

UPDATE: Sockeye coach Mike Caldwell confirms the year was...1993.
