Player of the Week
By Ross Bentley

Ryan Farrell of the Metards has been named Campus Recreation Player of the Week for his efforts in the co-rec recreational intramural volleyball league this semester.

Farrell was an active member of his team who always hustled and often times saved his team by getting the ball over on the team's third hit. He also excelled in kills and was effective from each position that he played in.

Farrell, a Senior Meteorology major helped lead his team to an 8-4 record during the regular season before falling in the quarterfinals of the playoffs to Sheldonites.

The Buffalo native says that it has been his experience in the sport of volleyball that allowed him to be successful this season. "I've been playing intramural volleyball since freshman year so I've had a lot of practice playing almost every semester," said Farrell.

In addition to volleyball, Farrell also competes in broomball, soccer, and floor hockey through Campus Recreation.  Farrell says that playing intramural sports has been a positive experience throughout his four years at SUNY Oswego.

 "Playing intramural sports give me the opportunity to continue being involved in sports, without committing a lot of time to play on a team here," noted Farrell.

When he isn't busy with intramurals, Farrell is an avid fan of hockey and football and roots for his hometown Sabres and Bills. Farrell also enjoys cloud watching and doing the weather on WTOP.
