Hometown: Seattle, WA Year: 2017 Major: Women and Gender Studies and Religion
Born in Seattle and raised in the city’s thriving frisbee community, Claire is no stranger to the sport of ultimate. Her passion and knowledge of the game make her an inspiring captain, always excited to lead the team with a sense of determination and a smile. Though Claire is one of many Syzygy players from Seattle, she sets herself apart on the field by her tenacious handler defense and steady hands on offense. Handlers and cutters alike can always trust that Claire will be available for an easy reset when they need her, and know that she’ll catch whatever comes her way. Alternatively known as “Rostov” or “Rosty,” she also answers to the name “Young Claire Rostov,” which might have something to do with her love for soft mushy foods and early bedtimes. If you want to win Claire’s heart, try bringing her bowls of guacamole, oatmeal, and hummus while watching the Food Network and playing country music (making sure to also comment on the need for more strong female characters in aforementioned country music). Always ready with a thoughtful comment or amusing joke, Claire never ceases to be an amazing teammate throughout all aspects of life.
