Junior Mary Zimny, a chaser for Gonzaga’s quidditch team, says her sport requires complete physical and mental focus. “Every muscle is constantly being used, from running, jumping dodging, throwing, and catching,” said Zimny, a human physiology major. “Quidditch is mayhem on the field, and while you’re in the game, you have to quickly make sense of that chaos.” Her favorite moments? Weaving between brooms, people and dodge balls – all while trying to hurl a volleyball through one of the three goal posts.

Quidditch is increasingly popular at Gonzaga and nationally. Despite its fantasy origins, the sport combines aspects of lacrosse, cross-country running and, well, magic.
