Spartan Blue set a school record in intramural soccer last Thursday, becoming the first free agent team to win a league championship with a 4-0 victory over the Freudian Kicks.

“We had ten different personalities on the team, but we worked hard and made it possible,” said team member and senior Ilhan Ayyildiz, illustrating the unique nature of the team and its challenges. Whereas most intramural teams sign up already organized and often play together year after year, the free agent team is made up of those who sign up for the sport as individuals and are playing together as a team for the first time.

“It’s incredible, “ said Team member Alex Cornett, a senior. The team had a 1-4 record in the season this year, but won both of their playoff games, he said.

In the competitive championship game, the FC Penguins defeated the Premature Shooters 2-1.

“We get better every time we play,” said team member Marcel Termollen. “That’s why we won.”
