Texas Women's and Non-Binary Ultimate Frisbee


  • 2000-2001

    Our Humble Beginnings

    Mary Presecan and Reid Smith founded the University of Texas Women’s Ultimate Frisbee Club in the spring semester of 2000. During that semester, the twice-a-week practices drew perhaps 10 players regularly, making a full game of 7 on 7 scrimmage impossible. We played in one tournament that semester, Centex, when we were pressed to come up with a team name. We adopted the name “Lady Marmalade” in part because marmalade was the required color orange, and also because we all dug the Labelle version of that song.

  • 2002-2003

    Melee is Born

    We changed our name to Melee. It means something along the lines of hand-to-hand combat or a riotous drunken bar brawl. A “violent free-for-all” if you will. Or if you won’t, it means “Pacifists”.

  • 2004-2005

    A Legendary Year

    Cara Crouch received the Callahan Award at Nationals where she graciously announced, “It’s All About Melee.” It was a fitting way to the end the season, at which point we were sad to see thirteen players graduate.

  • March 2016

    Melee Wins Centex

    For the first time in team history, Melee won Centex. We host this tournament every year, and winning it on home turf epitomized the meaning of Melee through the years as generations of alumni gathered on the sidelines to cheer on the 2016 team.

  • March 2017

    Melee Wins Centex... Again!

    The newly renovated UT Intramural Fields were home to the 2017 Women's College Centex. Melee became back to back champions after going undefeated through the weekend and winning the tournament.

  • May 2017

    National Runner Up

    Throughout the 2017 season, Melee reached the final of every tournament they went to. This includes President's Day Invite, Stanford Invite, Women's College Centex, Sectionals, Regionals, and, for the first time in program history, the 2017 College Championships.

  • March 2018

    Centex Threepeat!

    Melee not only won their first tournament of their 2018 season, but also took home the title of Centex Champions for the third year in a row. They finished their weekend undefeated and earned another Centex win for the program.

  • Fall 2021

    Guess Who's Back?

    Melee returned with a bang for their first full season since 2019. They qualified for Nationals and competed in California in December, finishing 11th in the country.

Melee & Mayhem

Texas Women's and Non-Binary Ultimate consists of two teams: Melee and Mayhem.

Melee is one of the nation's top collegiate teams. Since the beginning, Melee has qualified for Nationals 14 out of 17 years. We are a team rooted in commitment, teamwork, and excellence.

Mayhem is Texas' second team. Reinvented in 2006, Mayhem's focus is to provide UT a social and developmental ultimate frisbee team. Most of Mayhem's tournaments are local, and it is a great way to stay in shape, meet new friends, and play the best sport in the world!

Practice Schedule

Melee and Mayhem practice on at the Wright-Whitaker Sports Complex (IM Fields) on Tuesday and Thursdays 7:00-9:30pm and Fridays 6:30-9:00pm
