Snapshots from "Tempest vs. the West": July 30th, 2021
At the end of July, fellow WUL-member Seattle Tempest hosted a showcase game where their 2021 roster faced off against a team of players who came together from other Western Ultimate League teams, including six of our very own Utah Wild players: Vespera Aragon, Cori Bingham, Bert Cherry, Kyra Khoroujnikova, Rebecca "Makk" Kestin, and Lucy Williams.
