Question: Did you know that there are free agents in the realm of intramural sports? That’s hardcore…like parkour. (Which is something for a wholleee different blog.)
Groups around campus put teams together to play in as many sports as they possibly can. One such dedicated group is none other than the infamous Brazos Bulldogs. Brazos House is one of our 5 residence halls on campus and they take passion and competition to a whole other level. I’ve witnessed it first hand at “Dancing with the Mavericks” last semester. They didn’t win…but they should have. They were clearly the only ones with rhythm…but hey…they didn’t ask me to judge.
One of the best ways to get involved around campus and to make friends is to join an intramural team. Brazos helps their residences out by putting teams together for the students who live around each other to get involved in. The Brazos Ballers play basketball, the Brazos Dodgers play dodgeball, and the Brazos Pokemon Trainers play soccer. Don’t ask about that last one…still trying to figure it out, myself. Thanks to Garrett Jones for all the Brazos info!
MavElite also plays intramurals! Last year we had a flag football team and this semester, we’ll have a softball team! So come out and support UTA’s campus tour guides and telecounselors…and Kevin Cheek (one of our admissions counselors). Example time!
One of our tour guides, Kayla, plays co-rec soccer. This weekend, she played the ROTC team and she busted her knee open. Apparently, it was pretty gross. Way to take one for the team, Kayla!
Another one of our tour guides, Kristy, plays both basketball and sand volleyball for the Delta Delta Delta sorority team. Kristy played sports in high school, so for a student who doesn’t continue on with sports after graduation, it’s fun to be able to play on a team again.
Tina Rachel, another tour guide (catching a pattern?), says “intramurals are an opportunity to relieve the stress of the academic life”. She played flag football and volleyball last semester.
