This Week in Intramurals
The dodgeball recreational leagues ended Monday night. In the co-rec recreational league, Blue Ballers defeated Not N Da Face We’re Models, 4-0.
“The championship game was very exciting,” said Carlos Fillmann, captain of Blue Ballers. “We knew that if we wanted to win, we had to work together as a team.”
Los Pollos Hermanos also took the win over Not N Da Face We’re Models in the men’s recreational league, 4-2.
“I felt our biggest obstacle was working together as a team rather than individuals,” said Nick Califano, captain of Los Pollos Hermanos. “We eventually overcame it by learning to communicate better.”
Blue Ballers and Los Pollos Hermanos will move on to compete for the championship T-shirts in the competitive league playoffs.
“We’re excited to test our skills in the competitive league, and I think we stand a chance at winning the playoffs,” Fillmann said.
Regular season play continues for the competitive leagues. Of the 26 teams in the men’s competitive league, many have proven themselves to be standout competitors. Optimus Prime is the only team that remains undefeated at 8-0. Team Purple Cows is right behind, with a record of 8-1.
In the co-rec competitive league, Optimus Prime was knocked down in the rankings to second by Blue Ballers, whose record is 11-1. Winning their last two games, team Rolltiders holds third place in the standings with a record of 8-3.
The top seeded teams will continue on into the playoffs beginning on Sunday.
O’Doyle Rules is the leading team in the women’s dodgeball league, with a 7-2 record. The women’s league championship will be determined on Tuesday in Swetman Gymnasium. O’Doyle Rules will face off against Dillions Destroyers, and The Knockouts will take on TMNT. The winners will move on to the finals immediately following the semifinal games.
