MC intramurals

September 17, 2010

Intramurals are a good way to stay active without the hassle of practice every day.

During the first semester the intramurals offered are: co-ed four on four sand volleyball, ultimate frisbee, a bowling tournament, a tennis tournament, wrestling, three point shoot-out, three on three women’s basketball, five on five men’s basketball and a dodgeball league or tournament.

Volleyball plays Monday and Wednesday nights and ultimate frisbee which will begin soon, will be played on Tuesday and Thursday nights. There is an advantage to night games because of the new lights on the volleyball courts and football field.

There are 600 hundred students throughout the year who participate in the 26 to 27 different intramurals that are active on campus. The intramural staff are open to any suggestions from people who want to have a certain sport or activity as an intramural.

All teams compete in play-offs which lead to a championship game. The champions of the intramurals win t-shirts as their trophies.

“The uniqueness of the intramurals here at Monmouth are that they are all self-officiated. We don’t hire referees, we expect each team to officiate themselves in a sportsmanship manner,” said George Perry, director of intramurals.

There are four intramural interns who are in charge of bringing equipment to each event. The interns include senior’s, Brittany Parker and Sarah Winterstein, who have both been interns for four years, junior Megan Butler, and sophomore Danielle Diamond, who have both been interns for two years.

Intramurals are easy to join.  Perry sends an e-mail to each student on campus when each intramural starts or you can go on the Monmouth College website and click intramurals and sign up online. There are no fees for intramurals except for bowling which costs $6 for shoe rental and bowling. Grab some friends and join an intramural!
