MILTON — Yellow Jacket Ultimate Frisbee battled both a blustery wind and the Colchester Lakers Friday afternoon at home. 

Milton came away with a strong win, 10-4, after running, jumping and reaching to catch frisbees at the goal line.

This spring is Ben Sevey's first season as head coach, and he admitted to not knowing much about the sport ahead of time.

"What impresses me most about this team is the student leadership," he said. "They do a great job of managing themselves, organizing the offense and defense and creating our strategy."

Sevey said his main role is being supportive of the students and ensuring the team does the necessary drills and conditioning during practice.

This spring season is Colchester's first as a varsity program, Head Coach Chris King said. The Lakers will spend this season developing their skills little by little, with enthusiasm and fun. 

The Yellow Jackets play next at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 27 at Burlington.
