Sand volleyball and flag football open Capital’s intramurals

Campus News, Sports, Student Life

Capital opened the 2017-2018 intramural season with sand volleyball, and the more popular flag football will follow at the end of the sand volleyball season. Both are easy to join with the opportunity to play with friends or the chance to meet fellow students in a competitive setting.

Sand volleyball opened up with the warmer weather in early September with four teams. Each team includes four to seven participants, with around 20 people participating in the league in total.

Flag football includes more participation with around eight teams in past years. Connor Hopkins, one of the two heads of the fall intramural sports, says they’re anticipating over 60 participants for flag football.

“I inherited the flag football league thanks to my older friends on the baseball team when I arrived at Capital,” Hopkins said. “Once they graduated, I took over because I have work study, and my team is a dynasty.”

While running the league, he hopes to continue his team’s dominance in the league.

“The best part about running something like this is having control over a league,” Hopkins said. “I am a huge sports fan, so it’s fun to get a little taste of what running an actual league is like.”

Flag football starts around the middle of October, while the sand volleyball league continues action with games at 6 and 6:45 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
