Intramural Flag Football Championships


The 2017 Fall Intramural Flag Football season drew to a close Monday, as the Silver and Elite championship games were held at the UNCG Recreation Field. In the Silver division, Zone 5 defeated the Greensboro Beasts 35-27 to take home the honors.

“I didn’t do much winning playing football in high school, so it was fun to win,” said Zone 5 player Xavier Huntley, a freshman. “We got what we came for.”

In Elite action, the Juice Men defeated Gold 13-12 in a closely-fought contest to be named the champions.

“It’s pretty cool,” said Juice Man Austin Baer, a “super senior.” “I’ve waited four years and lost twice, so it’s great to win.”

Baer said that flag football and other intramural sports provided a great opportunity for students who miss their high school playing days.

“A lot of us don’t get the competition anymore because we’re not in (school) sports,” said Baer.

The Fall Season of Intramural Sports is quickly coming to a close with Outdoor Soccer Championships on Thursday, November 2nd and CoRec Basketball & Indoor Volleyball leagues beginning playoffs next week. Our last team event of the semester is Battle Canoes. This one-of-a-kind event has 3-person teams navigating canoes in our swimming pool. The goal is to be the last team floating.
