Sat, 2012/02/25

The Intramurals and Recreation department is looking to continue to bring students together through a multitude of sporting events. With five more tournaments left this semester, there is still a chance for you to get involved! Over the past two weeks, two tournaments—one for flag football and one for volleyball—were hosted by Keating staff for all to enjoy.

The two tournaments proved too successful and all the players expressed their enjoyment of the game and these types of events. Flag football brought in 30 students, with the winning team taking the last game with a close score of 30-24. The team, named Scrubs, consisted of captain Eric Nichols, Nate Schueller, Lindsay Drabek, Sean Gallagher, April Hlad, Rutul Patel, and Mike Evans, all members affiliated with IIT Research Institute. The volleyball tournament brought in approximately 25 students. The winning team, the IIT Rockers, consisted of captain Kushal Shah, Harshil Patel, Het Joshi, and Niraj Desai.

The next tournaments will be dodgeball and indoor soccer. The dodgeball tournament will be held Thursday, March 1. It will be a six-on-six person match-up with a max of seven per team. The registration deadline is Wednesday, Feb. 29 at 6 p.m. The next tournament after that will be the indoor soccer tournament and that will take place March 8 and 9 from 7-11 p.m. It will be a five-on-five match-up with a max of six per team.
