This June, 2017, Northwest's Director of Athletics Britt Atack will compete at the Great Grand Masters Beach Ultimate Championship in Portugal. Britt was chosen along with 16 other athletes to represent the United States in the inaugural event.
"I’m thrilled and honored to be selected to play for Team USA. It is exciting to be traveling to a beautiful part of the world to play a sport I love with a team of amazing people," says Britt.
Britt is the only player from the state of Washington on the roster. He is joining two other players hailing from Portland, Oregon, to represent the Pacific Northwest. It is Britt's first foray into the beach ultimate world, although he has a long history of experience playing in high-level competitions throughout his career. Britt competed in the Worlds Ultimate in 2002 in Hawaii, and in 2008 in Vancouver, British Columbia, earning a bronze medal both times.
