November: Winner, Winner - TXST University Coed Champion- Chicken Dinner
If I could name one thing better than being the TXST University Coed Champions in flag football (aside from being a Diamond Sweetheart) it would be having the pleasure of playing with the great men of Delta Sigma Phi. I’ve played my fair share of intramural sports throughout my college career, and this was by far my favorite experience. Not to mention we were undefeated :)
College can overwhelm you with work, and make you feel stressed due to a lack of time. Where do you fit time in with friends and how do you get your long-sought-after exercise plan in action? There is one solution that I have found to be the most valuable break: intramurals. No matter how good or bad you are, how in shape you are, or how many people you know, intramurals is a level playing field. It’s a zone for scholarly athletes to compete with the same opportunities. Not only do intramural competitions inject enthusiasm into student life, they are great stress relievers, instill team skills and are a great way to meet people.
As I take on the last leg of my college career and become one step closer to the real word (WOOHOO!), I’m going to deeply miss intramural sports. This is totally cheesy, but I feel so blessed to have been able to share the field with such kind, caring and respectful individuals. Not only do my fellow Diamond Sweethearts and the members of Delta Sigma Phi represent their organization well, they hold themselves to a higher standard than the rest. These types of organizations are the cornerstone of what makes Texas State great. I will cherish the friendships I’ve made throughout my years here playing intramural sports. I encourage anyone who has ever thought about participating to take the leap of faith and get involved. I promise you won’t regret it!
