The Ingraham Rams mixed (co-ed) ultimate team clinched the state championship on Saturday, February 24th, coming back from behind to beat Cleveland High School on universe, 12-11. The game was played under the lights at Foster Stadium in Tukwila and was livestreamed on Five Ultimate’s Facebook page.
Congratulations to all of the 2018 Mixed Ultimate Varsity players!!
We have an opportunity to play in a North American tournament, the biggest high school girls' tournament in the world!
We are doing lots of work to get strong this season so we can represent Ingraham and Seattle well in Northampton, MA on May 19th and 20th. In addition, we're working hard to fund-raise so that all players can join us as part of the team.
You can hire us to do yard work, house work, or other odd jobs! Any support via this site will be split across all players to help each player reach their personal goal of $200 and the team goal of $10,000.
Thanks for supporting the Ingraham girls' ultimate team in achieving our goals!

We had a smooth-running, heart screening event on February 7th at Ingraham High School, with 242 students going through the screening process.
The effort to bring the heart-screening back to Ingraham was led by our Ingraham Athletic Booster Club President, Julie McCoy. A dedicated group of volunteers including Sue Hauck, Ann Weber, Tricia & Brian Axtell, Lisa White, Holly Salowey, Ruth Pappas and our AD, Traci Huffer, kept the medical staff on schedule and well-fed. THANK YOU to all who volunteered their skills, their time, their cooking, to make this important event happen!
There were 4 students identified as needing follow-up consults, so it was well worth all of the work!
The ASB students pictured below also worked really hard on set-up and breakdown so if you see any of them give them a shout-out.
Nice work team!

Kelly Donovan 1986—2016
Kelly coached Ultimate Frisbee at Ingraham High School. We lost Kelly to sudden cardiac arrest on December 15th, 2016. She collapsed on Ingraham's field, while coaching her co-ed team in practice.
She was courageous, passionate, joyous, exuberant and loyal in all her endeavors. Through her artwork and charity football games, she helped raise thousands of dollars for Alzheimer's research. Her last act of love was the gift of life, via organ and tissue donation.
A new system called School Pay rolls out this year which allows families to pay athletic fees online. You can access SchoolPay on your student's SOURCE account. It's easy to use and doesn't require a separate password. Cash and checks still accepted in Ms. Medina's office.
These would be payments like the ASB $50 fee. Ask your coach or parent reps whom to pay for specific fees if you are unsure. Some team funds are collected and will go through the team's booster club account (not part of SchoolPay).
THIS IS TOTALLY SEPARATE FROM THE BOOSTER CLUB's FINANCES. IABC/ingrahamathletics.org is posting this as a courtesy since IHS student athletes need to pay the ASB fee 1x/year, and they can pay through SchoolPay.
Businesses who supported our concession stand project with their in kind donations. THANK YOU!
This is what the yard signs look like. Ask for one!
