  • Player Bio

    Stacy is the Women’s All Time Leader in Freestyle Division Titles. Thirteen World Titles. Seven US Open Titles. Women’s Player of the Decade (80’s).

    How I started: I was attending Colorado State University on a swimming scholarship and saw the Coloradicals doing a demo promoting the Grateful Disc Frisbee club on campus. I was mesmerized by their performance and was hooked. After 15 years of organized sports, I liked the fact that there were no coaches, no set practice times and you didn’t have to get wet! Ironically, The Colorado Swim Team would spend a month in the winter training in San Diego. We stayed in condo’s across the street from La Jolla Cove, one of the early jamming capitals of the world. It was a great opportunity for me to meet and jam with local players like John Jewel, Rick Le Beau and Donny Wallace. I fell in love with San Diego and as soon as I graduated I moved to the area. I’ve been here ever since.

    My greatest highlights come from the amazing people and extraordinary places I’ve experienced through Disc Sports. In my early days, road trips with the Coloradicals stand out. Especially the time we accidentally left Bill somewhere between Colorado and California without wallet, ID or money. I was driving with Rick, and Bill was driving with Doug Branningan. Bill got out of the camper truck to go to the bathroom, Doug didn’t know it and drove off. Several hours later, we realized our mistake. Bill hitchhiked the rest of his way and arrived an hour before us! (Bill has confirmed these details, so it’s not just jammer legend.)

    My first World Championship with Carolyn Yabe-Hubbard and the many shows and demos with Rick Castiglia were highlights. Finally, the wild and wacky adventures Amy Bekken-Schiller and I had traveling the world performing as the “California Girls” is unforgettable.
