Intramural sports have always been a great way for students to stay active and involved at ACU. They are also one of the best ways to meet people, especially as a freshman. After a successful past semester of flag football and volleyball, ACU’s intramural league looks forward to offering students a great spring as well.
“You can end up gaining lifelong friendships, plus you get to meet new people that you may not come across usually,” Director of Intramural Sports Kenli Edwards said. “It provides a way to let off some stress from classes or just life. You can come and play, and just have a great time with your friends, hall-mates, RA’s, whoever.”
As basketball continues, more and more students are either playing or coming to watch their friends.
“Right now, basketball is going on and it is doing very well with the students,” Edwards said. “This year, we have fifty-three teams and 589 participants across all four leagues. It’s a little bit surprising with the turnout we’ve had.”
Students can continue to expect many different sports and tournaments to sign up for as the semester continues.
“Soccer will be offered after spring break,” Edwards said. “Then, we will have many tournaments such as tennis, dodge ball, kickball, maybe disc golf and another handball tournament. We are also thinking about doing 5-on-5 flag football, and some other sports.”
Above all, Edwards and her team want to be sure that students are offered a variety of sports and given the opportunity to make long lasting memories.
“We want to get feedback from the students on what they want to play,” Edwards said. “We are always looking for students to let us know what they want to see offered, what changes they wish to see, and what new sports they want in future semesters.”
