Blue Mustang, the hilariously terrifying blue horse sculpture whose baleful, laser-eyed gaze you cannot escape, was unveiled at Denver International Airport in 2008. It was immediately both reviled and beloved.
Mesteño, the smaller sculpture on which it is based, gave the name to the team founded by Scott Salvati and Serena Woods in 2009. With the founding idea to gather a group of Ultimate-playing friends and go to Nationals, Mesteño has established itself as a perennial contender in the South Central Region and, like it's big brother Blucifer, a Denver institution.
After an early Nationals run in 2011, and many changes over the years, Mesteño has spent the past few seasons building stronger and stronger results with each Regionals finish better than the last. Will 2019 be a breakthrough year with a return to Nationals? Nothing is guaranteed, except that Mesteño will remain committed to its twin goals of Fun and Competition at the highest levels along the way.

In 2010, an elite women's club ultimate frisbee team called Molly Brown was formed. Molly Brown was chosen as the name as a tribute to a 20th-century Colorado suffragette and Titanic survivor Maggie “Molly” Brown.
While the "Unsinkable" Molly Brown is most well known for being a survivor of the 1912 Titanic disaster, many don’t know that she was also a philanthropist, advocate for workers and children, and women’s rights activist. Maggie remained committed to advocating for the less fortunate throughout her life and was far ahead of her time on women’s rights issues.
Throughout the past 9 years, the Molly Brown ultimate team has continued the spirit of Margaret Brown's activism by supporting women's and youth development and participation in ultimate frisbee. Our players have captained or coached women's college teams at CU Boulder, Colorado College, and Colorado State University, high school teams in the Denver/Boulder metro area, and the Colorado Youth Club Championships high school team. Molly Brown players have run development skills clinics for middle-, high-school, and college players and hosted showcase games to promote viewership of elite female athletes. Our players created a high school league where elite club players from the area play with high schoolers in a co-ed winter league focused on learning and development and have fundraised to support a scholarship for high school girls from Colorado to attend the National Ultimate Training Camp, which is hosted in Massachusetts every summer.
AYU’s winter indoor hat tournaments were a success this winter! Thank you to all the players who attended and played with great spirit and enthusiasm! We had 158 players attend this year, with a total of 242 players between the 4 tournaments. At the last tournament on February 2, we collected 70 items of canned food, which were donated to the Action Center in Lakewood. Thanks to everyone who contributed food!Read more
