Intramural Wiffleball season begins
The Intramural Wiffleball season has started here at Purdue Calumet. They just finished their second week, and they have had a positive start. There will be a total of five weeks for the wiffleball season, not including spring break. There are a total of four teams this year.
Everyone is looking forward to the season, from the players to their friends watching. One of the spectators, Hannah Amor, was giving support to some of her friends who are on the intramural bowling league.
One of the regular score keepers for several of the intramural sports is marketing major Catherine Yoder. She enjoys watching the game and, like many people, her favorite part of the game is when a player hits a homerun.
The first game of the night was team Wiffer vs. Team PUC Peregrines. Freshman Kelly Ladd of team Wiffer explained why she started playing the sport. "When I heard they were starting wiffleball, I was a little hesitant on joining at first, but then I figured I love softball, so this should be fun."
While team Wiffer lost to the PUC Peregrines with the final score of the night being PUC 12 Wiffer 7, Ladd will not bothered by this. "No matter how we do, I just want to have fun." Like any team in any given sport, a game is nowhere near as an enjoyable experience than with people you can have fun with. Ladd was fortunate enough to have teammates she enjoys playing with.
Along with the PUC Peregrines and Wiffer, the other two teams are Master Batters and Brazzers. The Batters are last season's reigning champs, and they hope to bring home the gold again this year. Senior Robert Gorman of the Master Batters is more than confident that they will do just that this season. Along with Gorman is a newcomer on their team, fellow senior Ryan Schimala, who believes they are going to win it this year as well.
The Batters played two games that night, with the first against Brazzers. In that first game, they dominated the Brazzers, beating them with the final score being 18-4. However, in their second game of the night, they lost some of their steam and were defeated by the PUC Peregrines. It was the closest game of the night, with the final score being 8-6.
Wiffleball is played on Wednesday nights in the PUC gym. However, over spring break, there will be no game. With three more games for the season, it can be anyone's guess as to who will win this year.
