One of my favorite memories from Fall Quarter was when my House competed in the coed flag football championships. While it was 8 pm and the start of winter was upon us, other members of my House came to the game to cheer us on, with one of my friends humorously dressing up in a suit and bringing a clipboard to act as “Team Manager” for the important game. We successfully pulled out the win and were awarded the coveted UChicago Intramural Championship T-Shirts from the IM Office for our efforts.
This past year, we formed a Women’s IM Basketball Team once again, and players from all four years of our soccer team took part. To add to the fun, I created an Instagram account where I posted fun action shots and hilarious video cuts from our games—this allowed our friends, family, and soccer coaches to stay up to date on our season. We were even reposted a few times by the UChicago Intramurals Instagram account. During the championships, our soccer coach and friends from over seven different varsity sports teams came to cheer us on. Some of our soccer teammates were studying abroad, but that didn't stop them from tuning in through Instagram Live, along with some of our parents. We secured the t-shirts for the second year in a row, and all of us are excited to take part in this tradition next winter.
