Championship Dreams are Realized

The school year may be winding down, but Intramural Sports dodgeball action was heating up Tuesday night as teams vied for championships in the recreational and competitive divisions. The championships were held in the Kaplan Center’s multi-activity court.


March Madness came early to RecWell

March Madness hit the Kaplan Center last weekend with the championship games for Intramural Sports 5-on-5 Basketball. The evening saw two hard-fought battles culminating with new teams claiming the title of Intramural Champion.


Piney Lake is Open

Spring weather came just long enough last weekend for UNCG students to ride the shuttle bus out to the school’s re-opened Piney Lake recreation area south of Greensboro and enjoy various activities, including boating and hiking, along with free food and music provided by a DJ.


Spartan Summit: 2018 Edition

The Kaplan Center was busy last Saturday, as the 20th Annual Spartan Summit Climbing Competition drew climbers of all skill levels to see if they could conquer the facility’s three-story climbing wall. Some were there for the glory, and some were there for… well, more individual reasons.


Love Boats

The Kaplan Center created a romantic atmosphere at last week’s Valentine’s Day-themed “Love Boats” event, serving dinner and allowing students to watch the film “The Notebook” while paddling canoes in the swimming pool. Those not wanting to risk being capsized, were free to watch from the poolside bleachers.


Fall Indoor Volleyball Championships

“It feels good,” said Trash member Antonio Tarin, a junior. “We’ve been playing two years, and this is our second championship.” Train credited the team’s victory to “great teamwork.” 

Tarin said that this will be the team’s last year in the intramural league, as some of the members will be forming a men’s club volleyball team next semester.
