First, a description for the All University Cup, if you already know what the All University Cup is, please feel free to skip to the second paragraph. Fraternities and sororities compete for “All University Points” to win the “All University Cup” with intramural sports. Like many other competitions the team with the most points wins. Fraternities and sororities earn points by placing in our intramural events and also earn points for having participants compete in those events. Points can be taken away/deducted for sportsmanship and forfeits.

Now that everyone knows what these points are and what there for… Here is the interesting part. The past three years Kappa Alpha has won the All University Cup. However if Kappa Alpha plans to win for a 4th time in a row, they are really going to need a clutch ending to this intramural season.

This past weekend Kappa Alpha went to work with gaining some points. KA won 1st and 2nd in the Wiffleball Tournament and also received 2nd and 3rd place in the Corn Hole Tournament. This made the All University Cup a close three-way race. Currently, as of April 7th, the Intramural All University Points standings are as follows:

Sigma Chi (EX) – 2,890

Kappa Alpha (KA)- 2,870

Sigma Alpha Epsilon (SAE) – 2,150

When you look at these scores, you may think it’s only a two-way race, but you must remember this. The basketball season is coming to a close and SAE has a chance to gain a massive amount of points. SAE has two basketball teams in separate divisions (Men’s and Co-Rec) and have the potential to win both. If they are able to win both championships for basketball they will receive 1,000 points. Tonight, April 7th, the semi finals for basketball games will take place and determine who will play for the championship games. So, be sure to come out to the Preston Health and Activities Center tonight and watch all the action, games start @ 5:30. Championship games will take place tomorrow, Wednesday April 8th, and the all campus championship of Open vs. Fraternity Champion is Thursday @ 7:30 after the 2ball 3point shoot out.

There is a lot of action happening this week in the Preston Center, so be sure to come check it out. If you ever have any questions or comments please call (270) 745-6060

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.

The  Badminton World Federation President, Kang Young Joong, missed an outstanding outing this past weekend. Doubles teams on the campus of WKU took to the courts of Preston as if it were a fight for their life. These warriors would stop at nothing to win this years doubles tournament. In all of my years of recreational badminton tournaments I had never seen the shuttlecock fly with such fury. Vijayeandra Parthepan & Anoop Rao Paidipally proudly carried home the victory of men’s championship honors. As for the women’s division, Zimple Kurlawala & Soniya Marwaha, demolished every competitor insight. This dynamic duo was untouchable and crowned as champions of the women’s division. These four badminton players will go down in my personal record book of worlds greatest badminton players. Kang Young Joong, you truly missed a heroic battle of bests.

The next sport to take place is the intramural basketball league. The deadline is today, Feb. 7, so be sure to sign up on imleagues.com.

Games will begin, on Feb. 14, so cancel your valentine’s dinner date and come check out the opening events of the 2011 Intramural Basketball Season. Opening night is actually Feb. 13 but if you need an excuse for the 14th, you can say it’s opening night for intramural basketball. The girls will understand and if they don’t…
