Intramural sports are back in action for the spring semester with both the basketball and broomball tournaments starting this past week.

The basketball tournaments had great turnouts with 27 men’s, nine Co-Rec and two women’s teams ready to battle for the coveted championship T-shirts.  In the early rounds, a few teams have proven they are contenders for the championship.  Take Em To Court and the Splash Brothers both won their first round games by over 30 points.

On the ice, 15 co-rec teams and 10 men’s teams have turned out to vie for a shot at intramural glory with a broomball championship. Derp Dynasty made a statement to defend its title after a convincing victory led by Kevin Farrell, who tallied six goals.
