Portland’s Sophie Hulbert, a member of the Ultimate Frisbee “Rising Tide,” all-star team, shows off her skills in recent action. Rising Tide, comprised of male and female athletes from Cape Elizabeth, Casco Bay, Falmouth, Freeport, Greely, Islesboro and Merriconaeg, finished third in the nation in the U-19 mixed (co-ed) division. After losing their opening game to a team from Seattle, Wash., they rallied back with wins over teams from San Francisco, Chicago, and Madison, Wisc. before losing to Boston in the semifinals. The team was then able to beat San Francisco again for third place in the tournament.
