BHH 2012 Wrap-up

Someone did the No-rain dance very exuberantly prior to last weekend. In what’s regarded as the hottest day in Borneo Headhunters Hat history yet, Borneo Headhunters Hat 2012 wrapped up with over a hundred players from 8 nations vying for the coveted BHH 2012 Championship title. Their reward: A Borneo Headhunters 2012 ultimate Frisbee disc and a championship medal.

The hot weather provided a challenge for all players and the tournament saw plenty of players suffering from muscle cramps. But nothing could provide a bigger challenge for the participants than the tournament champions, Red Hot Silly Divers, that dominated all the teams they played against.

23 games were played during the tournament, spread out between 3 fields, making for an Ultimate-packed Saturday. The tournament also provided an opportunity for local players to gauge themselves with foreign players while providing exposure to local Sabahans, further promoting the sport in the state.
