NANCY LEAHY GLASS

Inducted: 2012 - Player

Hometown: Chicago, IL

 


When you consider the history of Nemesis, Chicago's longstanding women's division national caliber team, THE player associated with this team for over 23 years is Nancy Leahy Glass.  Nancy was an original team member, captain and the heart and soul of the team.

She is the only women's player to appear in 16 consecutive Club Championships, including 4 semi appearances in ‘87, ‘95-97  and a finals appearance with Nemaheads ( Nemesis/Fishead combo team ) in 1986.  She enjoyed coaching Northwestern Women's Ultimate and has been an active member of the coaching staff for the Ultimate Peace Organization.  These accomplishments were achieved while raising 3 kids alongside Hall of Fame husband and Windy City Player, Mike Glass.

Nancy's play was emblematic of her approach to the game; while fiercely competitive, she played fair; played tough and played with grit.
