After graduating Work Forest, Soo was picked up by the All-Star Ultimate Tour the summer of 2016. She travelled across the country for five weeks with a group of hand selected ultimate women, competing against women's club teams from around the US. Along the way, alumni and current WOMBUKUS members cheered her on, in her journey across the country.
As many Wake Forest students do, Soo aspired to learn more, leading her to graduate school programs. Soo was accepted into UNChapel Hill's graduate program. This moment was both joyous and soul crushing for most of Ruckus. In one sense, our close friend and faithful leader Soo got into the program she had aspired for and rightfully deserved. On the other hand, we all were aware that we were now to play with Soo once again on the field, but this time as her opponent. How could we play against the girl that had humbly lead our team for so long? The thought of considering Soo as the "other team" was completely against our nature.
Throughout the 2016-2017 season Pleiades A team and Ruckus did not face a single match against one another, till the faithful end. In the DI college sectionals held in Winston-Salem, NC, Pleiades A team and Ruckus played one another. Soo played against Ruckus; Ruckus played against Soo. At first it stung, but for a short while Ruckus was once again playing with their fearless leader Soo, even if it was as her opponent. For Pleiades went on to play in the 2017 DI nationals (Ruckus fully supports the claim that it was because of Soo they achieved such greatness). Soo went on to be placed on the #1 women's 2017 All-Region Team on the Atlantic Coast.
Soo's career as a student athlete will again come to a close when her five year eligibility runs out at the end of 2017; however, her greatness will not end here. The positive direction ultimate frisbee as a sport is taking, making its way to the Olympics', we fully expect to see Lindsay Soo grow and continue to be the SOOper Star she is. With love, Ruckus.
