Marianna “Banxx” Heckendorn began playing ultimate with Andover High’s Golden Gophers. She then encountered the fearsome Claremont Greenshirts and her heart hasn’t been the same since. Now living in the women’s frisbee capital of the world (Seattle), she’s excited to join Ultiworld in increasing D-III Women’s coverage. You can reach her by email (mheckendorn00@gmail.com).
