Michael, age 20, was a member of Carleton’s Ultimate Frisbee team which, despite the college’s small enrollment and remote location, placed third in the country last year. He and three teammates were en route to the Minneapolis airport on Friday afternoon, where they were to fly to a tournament in Palo Alto, Calif. Their SUV skidded on an icy road in snowy conditions, and slammed head-on into a large truck. Two of Michael’s teammates also died in the accident. A third teammate is hospitalized in stable conditions, as is the driver, who is also a Carleton student.

According to the state police, neither alcohol nor speeding played any role in the accident, and all five occupants of the car were wearing seat belts.

Born in Washington, D.C., Michael Goodgame moved to Westport with his family at age four. He attended public schools, where he was known as a diligent and curious student, an engaging writer, a respected leader, and an accomplished athlete. At Staples High School, he was elected president of the Student Assembly and co-captain of the men’s swimming and diving team. He also enjoyed competing on the Water Rats club swim team, and in the recreational basketball league.
