Vassar Quidditch Team: Butterbeer Broooers Explore
This past weekend, the Vassar Quidditch Team was scheduled to go to Buffalo, New York to partake in a tournament that multiple schools would participate in. Due to injury and weather, the team was forced to pull out of the tournament. However, although the Vassar Quidditch squad did not attend the Buffalo tournament, they still have a lot planned for the rest of the year. One of the most recognized sports on Vassar’s campus, Quidditch is a combination of athletic ability and strategic skill that brings the magic of wizard athletics into the real world.
Saxon Elliott of Northampton, Mass., mother of freshman Conrad Schott, 18, who headed up the Vassar Quidditch team, agrees.”I sent him off to Vassar, and never once did I realize he would ascend to such greatness,” she says with a laugh. She made the pink capes worn by the New York team. (All Quidditch teams wear capes.)”
