Miracle on 38th St. won the co-recreational tournament championship game 5-1 over 633/Coliseum.

The title is the second consecutive tournament championship the team won.

“A bunch of us have been playing all four years,” senior team member Scooter Stein said. “About one half to two-thirds of this team played last year.”

The winners of the men’s softball tournament were the members of Slob, who defeated Angels in the Outfield 6-1.

Many of the players on Slob said they have been waiting four years to finally earn an intramural championship.

“We lost in the championship game freshman and sophomore years and lost last year in the first round,” senior team member Matt Foor said.

After coming close to securing an intramural title twice, Foor said he and his teammates were worthy of this year’s championship.

“The guys played hard and worked hard,” Foor said. “They deserved it.”

Softball was not the only intramural event still going on last week.

The four surviving teams of the men’s dodgeball tournament were ultimately cut down to one Thursday night at the Health and Recreation Center.

Average Joe’s defeated Fly Spy in the first semifinal match, and Great Balls of Fire advanced to the title game by outlasting Delt Seniors in the second match.

With the championship match set, the tournament concluded with a result reminiscent of the film “Dodgeball.”

Life imitated art as Average Joe’s defeated Great Balls of Fire to take the men’s dodgeball championship.

In the finale of the co-recreational dodgeball tournament Thursday night, The Rookies were victorious over Heavyweights.
