    Mya Hernandez and Joe “Smash” Anderson–players for Michigan Hybrid and Fort Collins Shame, respectively–were named the winners of the 2021 Spirit and Equity Award.

    The Spirit and Equity Award, established in 2016, is given to both a male- and female-identifying player in the mixed division, and it “honors athletes who have exhibited personal integrity, responsibility and fairness, along with a commitment to enhancing equity in play and in their communities.”

    Hernandez has been a standout cutter for Hybrid on their run to the national final. Anderson has been a driving force behind Shame’s rise to the elite ranks of the mixed division.

    “I am grateful for all the sport has given back to me,” Anderson told Ultiworld.
