The intramural office is hosting the intramural sports closing ceremonies to cap off the end of the spring season. The event will take place April 30 at 9 p.m. in Bennett Gymnasium.
“We will be giving out awards, we’ll have a slide show, and we’ll have free sundaes,” said Kyle Pinson, assistant intramural director. “Everyone is invited. It’s going to be a lot of fun and it will be a great way to end our intramural season.”
With the intramurals season winding down, the university total point leaders are coming right down to the wire. Points are awarded for first and second place finishes along with participation points.
For men’s intramurals, Galaxy holds a slim lead with Gamma Sigma Phi trailing by just 40 points.
Galaxy finished in first place in the champion league for waterball along with a first place finish in the pledge league for flag football. GSP gained points for its first place finish in the champion league in both flag football and volleyball.
For women’s sports, Sigma Theta Chi is leading in total points and has a chance to be the overall point’s leader for women for the third consecutive year. GATA is in second place with Ko Jo Kai in third.
The Siggies gained points for winning both the champion league and the rec league for volleyball while GATA came in first place in the champion league for waterball.
Over 3,000 students participated in intramural sports at ACU this year. Darci Halstead, junior family studies major from Odessa, participated in nine intramural sports this year.
“It’s been a really fun year this year,” Halstead said. “Intramurals are a great way to get involved. If you’re not playing intramural sports then you’re not getting the full ACU experience.”
