Kicking off a new season

It’s about that time for intramural sports to kick off its new season. Joining a team is a great way to get involved and meet people on the SMU campus.

Women’s, men’s and co-ed volleyball, tennis and soccer are the first three sports to start off the fall season the week of Sept. 9.

Students and many upperclassmen recommend joining in on intramural fun.

Junior Allenna Bangs said that the experience will be rewarding.

“It’s a great way for the not so athletically talented to get involved and meet all different kinds of people,” Bangs said.

The soccer practice schedule for the fraternities and sororities is as follows: Mondays and Wednesdays 5 to 11 p.m. for the boys and Tuesdays and Thursdays 7 to 11 p.m. for the girls.

In order to have a co-ed team, there need to be at least eight players willing to show up and make a team.

The volleyball games are played in Dedman and the practice schedule is Tuesdays and Thursdays 5 to 11 p.m. For a co-ed team there must be at least six players to fill up a team.

There is no game schedule set in stone for volleyball or soccer; instead they are played on a weekly basis.

The tennis team does not have a practice schedule and its games are played Sunday and Monday nights 6 to 10 p.m.

Intramural Director Chris Hutton is very excited about starting off this year’s season and hopes many students will come out and join.

Intramurals are a big part of the SMU campus, not just with greek life, but the dorms as well.

Boaz and McElvaney Hall are very much affiliated with intramural sports, as well.

For co-ed teams anyone is welcome to come out and play as long as there are enough people to make up a team.

“I believe that intramurals here at SMU bring out more fans than the entire football program combined,” junior Bobby Sanders said. “There always seems to be a lot of support from the dorms, the greeks and anyone else who wants to support.”
