Involvement in Intramurals

By: Samantha Jones

Bridgewater State has an abundant amount of activities one can do on campus. One of the most popular activities is intramural sports. As of now, the two sports that are going on during the fall season are softball and flag football. Both of these are very competitive among peers within the school, but especially so in Flag Football.

Right now, there are about 10 teams competing for the coveted BSU Intramural Champion t- shirt. This t-shirt is very special in that it is given to the one team that wins the entire league. The design is not released until a winner is announced and it is a very exciting time for most people playing.

Johnny Capeless, on team “Injured Reserves”, says “Honestly all I want is the t-shirt, the bragging rights of going undefeated would also be cool too though.” Johnny’s team is currently undefeated with three games left until playoffs.

For playoffs, only the top two teams from each division will play each other until there are two left. Then, those two will play each other to see who wins the coveted BSU Intramural Sports t-shirt.

Melissa Bonomo, coordinator of Intramural Sports, takes her job very seriously. She does all of the coordination by herself, and hires students to ref as well as scorekeep. The refs and scorekeepers are also very into the games. Scorekeeper Kelsey Spinney says “I really want a certain team to win in every game I scorekeep for, but we are meant to be bias.”

Obviously competitive natures run high at this school. A lot of students do Intramural Sports here because the time commitment to the actual sport is too much to handle with academics. This means a lot of former athletes play Intramurals and that is why the sports are usually very competitive.

This season is becoming very exciting and hopefully the next season will be just as great. Next season will be Volleyball and Indoor Soccer. I encourage every reader to check out IMLeagues and sign up for the next batch of sports being played starting in October as well as the next two tournaments that are being played, Pickleball and 3 on 3 Basketball.
