The week at a glance in intramural sports games, scores and players.
By Kelsey Blair
The Beach Volleyball League started off Fall Intramurals this past weekend. Both the Co Rec and Men's Leagues began, and students were excited to get on the court and test out their Volleyball skills.
In the first men's game of the season it was "Russell and the Cox" versus "The Weapons." "The Weapons" were able to take home the victory two sets to none in two close games. They won the first set 22-20 and the second set 21-17.
"ZBT" suffered a hard loss Friday in their game versus "To Kill a Blocking Bird." After winning their first set 21-18, they lost in a nail biter in their second set 25-23. That set proved to make the difference as they fell short in the third set losing 21-15. With that, "To Kill a Blocking Bird" went home with their first victory of the season.
On Sunday, "To Kill a Blocking Bird" dominated in their second game of the season beating "The Big Dig" easily two sets to none. They won the first set 21-11 and the second set 21-12, bringing their record to 2-0.
This loss brought " The Big Dig" to 0-2 for the season. They lost to "The Weapons" two sets to none earlier in the day. "The Weapons" beat them 21-19 in the first set and 21-16 in the second set. This brought "The Weapons" overall record to 2-1.
"Bikini Bottom" dominated in their win over "Russell and the Cox." Winning their first set 21-14 and their second set 21-11. "Bikini Bottom" were able to easily win their second game of the day as well versus "ZBT", bring their record to 2-0.
In the Co Rec divisions things heated up quickly with close games, blow outs, and come back victories.
The first surprise of the season was "What are those?!." They were able to dominate "Gab Likes to Get Bumped," who were the defending champions from the beach volleyball tournament on Sunday Funday the week before. They won in two blowout games, beating them 21-16 in the first game and 21-9 in the second game.
This was a surprising comeback for "What are those?!" after their loss in the first game of the day against "That's What She Set." After "What are those?!" won their first game against them 21-19, they lost the next two 21-19 and 21-9.
This was "That's What She Set's." second victory of the season after beating "Oswego's Best" on Friday. They beat them two sets to one in their first game of the season.
