Intramurals head into playoffs
The intramural season is drawing to a close, with games in all leagues finishing up this weekend. The playoff picture is shaping up, and first round match-ups are falling into place.
Dodgeball finished its season late Wednesday night and looks forward to some exciting match ups in the playoffs next week. Lil Bit O’ Color, which is also a volleyball team, was undefeated heading into the last week of season play and should hold the playoff’s top seed. They will be followed closely by Bad News and the Poke Masters who both entered the last week with just one loss. Three Guys, Four Girls, Off in the Woods, Cat Straighters and the Phoenix Suns will all reach the second season.
Intramural board president Tyler Groenink (who is a member of first place team Lil’ Bit O’ Color) speaks highly of dodgeball’s success, which is a new inception to intramural sports at Biola this year.
“It has been the most consistent sport with the least amount of forfeits,” he explained. Groenink also praised an impressive fan base.
“The Poke Masters have like 30 people cheering them on each time they play,” he said. “They are loud and sometimes a little obnoxious. It’s great.”
Flag football’s final week of regular season play will provide some exciting match-ups with playoff implications.
