Congrats, Hodags!

The University of Wisconsin men's ultimate frisbee team, the Hodags, took top national honors, led by Callahan Award winner Dan Heijmen:

Early on at the 2007 UPA College Championships Open final, it looked like Colorado would be the first team all weekend to challenge a dominant Wisconsin team. In the end, however, the Hodags were too tough for Mamabird, as Wisconsin cruised to a 15-7 victory.

Dan was in a small creative writing course with me a few years back. He was always notably positive, something that no doubt translated well on the field.

Oh. Don't know what a hodag is? Here. It's pure lumberjack Wisconsinalia.
