With the beginning of tennis and football upon us, ultimate Frisbee entering the playoffs and dodgeball’s regular season completed, it’s an exciting time for all those teams hoping for the coveted championship t-shirts.
In dodgeball, eight teams remain in a single elimination bracket that will be played out on Oct. 22 during Mercer Madness. It is win or go home for the six-man squads.
As far as flag football is concerned, it is one of the most exciting sports that Intramurals has to offer. It brings in one of the highest participations throughout the year. “We had 61 teams signed up to play and we’re looking forward to a great season,” said Assistant Director of Intramurals Todd Thomas.
-Captain’s quizzes are now available on IMleagues.com for all captains to complete. It is mandatory that these quizzes are taken and passed with a score of 100 percent. Captains will have to watch two short video clips before taking the 15-question quiz. It is up to the captains to relay the information from the videos to their teammates in order to smoothly carry out the football season.
-This year, games will be played at one of two separate locations. Due to the construction of the new football stadium, there is one field located behind the softball field that will be known as the “IM softball field”. The second location will be behind the soccer field and near the lacrosse practice field. This will be known as the “IM lacrosse field”.
-Also, it is very important that all participants of Intramurals DO NOT cross over the designated practice area between Bear Field and the IM lacrosse field. This includes when practice is not in progress.
-Finally, there will be a Halloween 5k ran at Macon State on Oct. 27. There will be food, music, tshirts, and prizes given to those who place in the event or run in the event with the best Halloween costume. The registration fee is only $5 for Mercer students and the registration form can be found on the front page of IMLeagues.com.
