The Raleigh Flyers announced tonight that they have signed Jessi Jones — a Team USA U23 player in 2013, Beach Worlds player this year, and multiple time Nationals player with Raleigh Phoenix — to a contract to play against the Nashville Nightwatch this weekend. The signing is part of a larger ‘Women’s Ultimate Day.’ Jones becomes the first woman to be signed to an AUDL team or any semi-pro ultimate team.

“Competing with the Raleigh Flyers will be an incredible experience; I am excited to compete alongside my peers on the professional stage,” she said in a statement. “Thank you to everyone in the Triangle ultimate community for the support and encouragement over the years.  I look forward to bringing my friends and family out to the game to share in the experience.”
