Campus Recreation Report

On Thursday, Campus Recreation hosted Halloween Bowling at Lighthouse Lanes in Oswego.

There were 12 participants in the women’s division and seven in the men’s. Participants had the chance to play two games to get the highest score. Maggie Murphy of the women’s division and Sean Markey of the men’s were the winners and both received a Campus Recreation championship T-shirt.

There were also many categories of the costume contest. Courtney Livoti won best overall costume, Kelly Kearns and Anthony Macchiano won best pair costume, Caroline McGurve won most effort costume and Sarah Endress won most original costume. Winners received money on their plus plan. Additionally, there was a candy jar guessing game for participants.

The men’s competitive flag football league continued into the finals last Friday with competition between Win or Lose We All Booze and Save the Receipt. Win or Lose We All Booze got out to a fast start with a 14-6 lead in the first quarter. Save the Receipt came back in the third quarter with two touchdowns to bring the score to 18-14.

Nearing the end of the fourth quarter, the score was 24-20, with Save the Receipt in the lead. With five seconds remaining, Alec Nelson of Win or Lose We All Booze caught a pass for the game-winning touchdown, bringing the team out on top as the champions league. Although the team faced an injury, everyone was able to pull together and make the win happen.

“We just played the toughest team and had the best game we’ve played all season,” said Bill Lackner, a strong contributor to Win or Lose We All Booze’s success throughout the league. “We won last season and it feels great to win again.”

Campus Recreation hosted its fall tennis tournament and free lesson on Sunday, Nov. 2 from 5 to 7 p.m. in Romney Field House. The event had previously been planned for Sept. 13 but was rescheduled due to inclement weather.

Participants had the opportunity to learn how to play tennis prior to the start of the tournament. Instruction was provided for all skill levels by the women’s varsity tennis head coach, Erin Skaradek.

The tennis tournament took place following the lesson and allowed participants to compete in a friendly environment. Madison St. Gelais and Sean Green emerged as the winners of the tournament and both received a championship T-shirt.

Upcoming events include the dodgeball tournament, delicious nutritious cooking class and the racquetball tournament.
