Written By Katie Haremski, Features Editor —

Hundreds of dogs filled Coolidge Park on the weekend of Sept. 22-23 for the
Skyhoundz Canine Disc Championship. Competitors and their dogs traveled from
across the world to compete. Various competitors hailed from the United States, Italy,
and Canada.

In its fifth year in Coolidge, guests were able to watch from the Main Field and the Sport
Field, where various dogs and owners competed. The competition was free and open to
the public.

Knoxville native and UTC junior Zack Zimmerman watched the competition with his friends as they played Spikeball on Saturday, Sept. 22.

“I have never seen anything like this!” Zimmerman exclaimed.

The Skyhoundz series embodies the largest scale disc competition for dogs in the
world.
