Flag football and sand volleyball champions have been crowned for this semester.
The winners of the co-rec league were the Gamcers, which consisted of team members from the Gamma Chi Delta sorority and the Lancer fraternity.
Their championship match came with a win over the Porcupines in the final game.
â€œItâ€™s never easy to play a team of good friends because they work so well together as a unit,â€ said senior Kristy Hamilton. â€œAlso, you definitely donâ€™t want to mess with Gabbie Roe when she puts her game face on.â€
Their win came with a $100 gift card to Bays, as well as Intramural Champs t-shirts.
The womenâ€™s league champions were Trinityâ€™s own womenâ€™s basketball team.
â€œWe decided to play Intramurals last year during practice one day,â€ said senior Elizabeth Balido. â€œOur coaches love to have us run routes as a way to warm up for practice and we realized that a lot of us were really good receivers so we did it.â€
With the help of their coaches, they trained hard enough to win the championship.
The womenâ€™s basketball team had to face Trinityâ€™s tennis team in the championship round.
â€œThey were aggressive and had the desire to win more than other teams we play,â€ Balido said. â€œTheir defense was great but in the end our offense won out.â€
Having a sports team enter intramurals is not uncommon at Trinity. Some coaches encourage it as it builds team bonding and allows the team to have fun outside of their own sport.
â€œIt definitely strengthened our team chemistry because we just went out there and played our hardest and really supported each other through it,â€ Balido said. â€œIt was nice to get out of our typical routine and play a different sport.â€
Along with flag football wrapping up, the sand volleyball champions were also crowned.
The â€œThatâ€™s What She Setâ€ team took home the championship for this semester: a team consisting of a group of friends who just love to play volleyball together.
â€œOur biggest competition was the team we played in semifinals since the two guys on that team play club volleyball and they knew what they were doing,â€ said junior Andrea Zavala.
It takes more than just skill to win the tournament. A team must consist of hard workers who are able to communicate well, and being a group of friends, they obviously did that well.
â€œWe decided to play Intramurals because we thought it would be fun to have games every week with other groups of friends or just groups on campus,â€ Zavala said. â€œWe also wanted to win the IM shirt.â€
The next round of Intramurals include dodgeball and indoor soccer.
