After last week’s buzz about Jessi Jones becoming the first female player signed (to a one-day contract) in pro ultimate, she also set a new record: the first female to play in a pro game.

According to the AUDL’s statistics, Jones played 14 points (all defense) in the Flyers’ 33-22 win over the Nashville Nightwatch. She recorded two completions and one catch. She had no turnovers, goals, assists, or blocks.

Here she is being introduced before the game:
