Congratulations to Los Lobos for being this year’s dodgeball champions!

To go along with the recent theme of Halloween, Mercer teamed up with Wesleyan and Macon State to run the first annual Monster Dash 5K & 1-mile Costume Fun Run on Oct. 27. The event was extremely successful and had a turnout of about 20 Mercer-affiliated members in the Macon State hosted affair.
“We’re excited about hosting the event next year and possibly working with Quadworks to pair up and possibly show a movie on Porter Patch following the race next year,” said Assistant Director of Intramurals Todd Thomas. “For the first year pairing up on the event with other area colleges we were fairly pleased with how things went,” he added.
Also, having dodgeball and other Intramural events united with the rest of Mercer Madness’ proceedings seemed to work out excitingly well this year. With a night full of games, basketball excitement, food and an enthralling dodgeball tournament, the event is sure to be an annual occurrence. “Having some excellent dodgeball played gave everyone something to watch and the carnival games and refreshments provided by Quadworks really brought the event to life,” said Thomas. “It was the first time since I’ve been here that we’ve tried to do something like a late night event in the UC but it’s something that I really hope catches on and continues,” he added.
Thomas and the rest of Intramurals anticipate a larger group of fans and members to participate and partake in the events in the future. In fact, Thomas did not close out the possibility of having a dodgeball tournament again in the spring.
With dodgeball and Frisbee coming to a close, football and tennis are now beginning to reach the meat of their seasons.
As of Oct. 30, most flag football teams have gotten at least two games under their belts. 27 of the 60 total teams still find themselves undefeated. That’s a lot of competition disbursed throughout the leagues.
