UR quidditch team sets sights on another national title

The game first introduced in the Harry Potter series has become popular on some college campuses in the U.S., including the University of Rochester.

The U of R's co-ed quidditch team, known as the UR Thestrals, has had great success in recent years, including winning the U.S. Quidditch Cup this past spring.

Just last month, the team won the Northeast regional championship for the second consecutive year.

Ashley Doerzbacher joined the team this morning for a practice at Total Sports Experience in Gates. She learned how the game is played and why it's become so popular on the UR campus.
