Intramurals power forward

     There’s one thing on this campus that many people strive for, but only few obtain: a t-shirt. Not just any t-shirt; an intramural championship t-shirt.

     Starting three weeks ago, the men and women’s basketball is drawing in participants and spectators from all over campus.

     With 400-500 students participating throughout the year, intramural sports are an easy way to meet and connect with new people. They are open to students of any skill level and have proven to be a great way to get physical activity.

     From freshman looking to get involved on campus, to collegiate athletes branching out to other sports, everyone is welcomed to participate!

     “I played basketball in high school and I missed it,” said junior volleyball player, Annelise Rohrer. “Participating in intramurals gives you a great chance to play the sports you miss and connect with people.”

     “Its pretty chill but at the same time can get intense,” said freshman Caleb Potts. “You, as the players, are the coaches and you can do whatever to get the win.” 

     While basketball is the only intramural taking place at the moment, students will have the chance to participate in indoor soccer and Ultimate Frisbee later in the semester. Games are typically played Monday through Thursday evenings from 7 to 11 pm.

     Intramural Chairperson Caleb Ledford, hopes to organize a weekend spike ball tournament in the coming months to introduce the sport to campus. Ledford also says that he is open to suggestions regarding intramurals.

     For questions on how to get involved, you can email him at ledfordc@mail.mvnu.edu.
