Oregon has had a women’s team since the mid 80s and had streaks of success over the past 2.5 decades. The team’s last College Nationals were in 2002. Oregon has a history of Callahan winners with Jody Dozono in 1999 and Chelsea Dengler in 2003. A few years ago the team decided to be renamed “Fugue” which has two appropriate definitions.
Fugue /fyüg/ noun 1 a dream-like state of loss of one’s identity that is usually coupled with flight from one’s usual environment. 2 a musical term to describe a short melody introduced by one part and successively taken up by others.
The team name “Fugue” adequately represents a change from regional level competition to high levels of national caliber ultimate representing the Northwest. The team has battled back onto the national circuit after four years, and Fugue is making its long awaited return to the UPA College Nationals.
