Archive for the ‘Sportsmanship’ Category

First and foremost the topic that is in the front of everyones mind, MARCH MADNESS, and the current leaders of the Intramural Bracket. For the Men’s Division there are 3 competitors who are tied for first with a point possibility of 157. Those individuals are Mitch Herr (Pike), Baker Dodge (SAE), and Cam Lackey (EX). So, congratulations to those guys for having the best bracket so far. As for the Women’s Division, the top 3 leading ladies are Emily Lanman (Phi Mu), Kayla Foster (Kappa Delta), and the IMREC Computer is currently in third.

Now that you know who is leading the 2011 Intramural NCAA Bracket Challenge let’s discuss SPORTSMANSHIP. Many websites define good sportsmanship and bad sportsmanship, I found many of these definitions very elementary. If you don’t know what good sportsmanship is, GOOGLE it @ google.com If you would like to see some bad examples of sportsmanship follow this link. So, please keep respect at a high level as you need a 3.0 to advance into the playoffs. That goes for both soccer and basketball. Participants, one reminder, keep paying close attention to e-mails from imleagues.com and if you have any questions please contact the intramural office at (270) 745-6060.

Fall break is over and as flag football is back underway it’s that time in the season for big wins. For teams to make the playoffs they will need to be in the top half of their 6 team bracket. With the end of regular season approaching teams need to remember that sportsmanship effects your playoffs possibilities. Teams must have an average of a 3.0 out 4.0 sportsmanship grade to advance. Our sportsmanship rule has held teams back from advancing on past the regular season is years past. With the end of flag football coming closer other intramural sports are  now available.

Some new sports that will begin soon include Doubles Racquetball, Team Handball, and the Turkey Trot. So, if you are looking to win an intramural championship shirt and your flag team didn’t make the cut, you still have many opportunities to earn yourself a championship shirt. The three upcoming sports require different skill sets, Doubles Racquetball– you may need a little hand eye coordination and must have the ability to dodge people swinging racquets.Team Handball– a team event that is similar water polo on land and requires either a lot of endurance or a deep depth chart. Turkey Trot– this event is a 5k challenge so if your not up for a “light” run you can always walk. Our intramural department hopes to seen our participation grow in each sport so please sign up online.
