Intramural tournament champions in basketball, volleyball, dodgeball

Students from Metropolitan Community College-Blue River competed with students from MCC-Longview and MCC-Penn Valley in the intramural tournaments, a huge event hosted by MCC-Blue River. The intramural tournaments boasted 21 teams comprising 78 players of three sports, including basketball, volleyball and dodgeball. In all, eleven basketball teams, seven volleyball, and three dodgeball teams took the court.

The final winner of the basketball tournament was the team KJock, whose members were Kyle Jackson, Korey Stucker, Hakim Houston and DeAngelo Mack. They defeated a team made up of Somali students from MCC-Penn Valley in the final round. Their contrasting styles of play made for a fun final.

Team SWAG won the Dodgeball Tournament. SWAG was the only team to participate in all three intramural tournaments. The team members were
Nick Tolar, Daniel Delaney, Mateo Guhl, Jon Guhl, and Andrew Ralph.

In the final tournament, volleyball, the Blue River Student Ambassadors and Trail Blazers men and women soccer players all entered teams. None of them, however, advanced all the way to the final. The eventual winner, “The Muggles Return,” defeated “The Chicks” from MCC-Longview for the championship. The Muggles Return winners were Paul Carter, Leah Carter, Kai Orther, Alli Rippee, and Kathryn Boase. The victory was doubly rewarding, since they were runners-up in the fall semester volleyball tournament when simply named “The Muggles!”

The next intramural tournaments are scheduled for mid April. Look for MCC-Blue River to post more information on the Facebook page and The MCC Insider.
