RECSports Crowns Season One Champions

Kat Wilberding

The battles have been waged, the games have been won, and a champion has been found for each division of every sport. How We Doin came out on top in fiddle stx beating Team Dynasty in the final and ending Season One with an undefeated season. Acme Roofing was the victor in men’s volleyball and finished the season with an 8-1 record after beating How We Doin in the finals. The team 261+1 took the trophy in women’s volleyball triumphing over the Hot Tamales and finishing with a 5-1 record. In co-rec volleyball, Bangin’ Bulldogs spiked their way to the top conquering Team Two Hands in the final and ending the season with a 7-0 record. Inter Milan reigned victorious in men’s soccer with a final record of 5-1 after the final against Jon’s Lunch. Co-rec soccer winner, Bandits, have a 6-1 record and beat the Banana Pancakes for the championship.

Another champion will be crowned at Midnight Madness. Last week I mentioned a 3-point contest that resulted in four finalists who will then compete in another 3-point contest at Midnight Madness. Who are these finalists? The skilled four are James Farris, Paul Jefferson, Zach Guglielmo, and Christopher Chin. Good luck in the final competition!

With the finals for Season One all done it is time to give due to Season Two sports. RECSports offers 3 v. 3 basketball, flag football, kickball, team handball, and tennis in Season Two. Sundays, as in the age old American tradition, will still be dedicated, in part, to football as RECSports starts Season Two off with flag football and kickball on Sunday, Oct. 26. Kickball will finish up its weekly games on Monday’s and Monday night basketball will certainly be a great way to start the work week. Tuesday’s are all about basketball as the week’s games finish up for that sport. Wednesday and Thursday are team handball nights! Tennis will be played on the participants’ schedules. Finally, the racquetball ladder is still up and running so if you couldn’t get into a Season Two sport, sign up for racquetball at the Equipment Services Desk.

Season Two promises to be amazing as the turnout was enthusiastic. If you are not participating you should consider coming out to watch the games. The games are often highly competitive and entertaining. In fact, if you are participating, I know it gets competitive, but don’t forget to have fun.

Speaking of competitions, the Quest for the Charger Cup is still going strong. As of Oct. 23, the Bangin’ Bulldogs are in the lead with 142 points. Team DieNasty follows with 112 points and Jon’s Lunch is in third with 106 points. For the complete listing stop by the Rec Center and check out the RECSports bulletin board.

Last but by no means least: congratulations to Bangin’ Bulldogs this week’s participants of the week.
