Intramural Soccer

I’ve always played varsity soccer during my high school career.  Even though, I would’ve loved to play for a D1, even a D2 school, I knew the time and dedication wouldn’t work out with the major I wanted to pursuit.

So, when I found out that there was an option to play intramural soccer without traveling (like club soccer), I knew I had to play.  You only need a team captain and enough players!  If you don’t have a team you can still sign up as a free lancer and they’ll make sure you have a team.

Even better, there’s flexibility about when and what time you want to play!  Overall, I have had a great experience playing coed intramural soccer these past few years.  I met great people and got to play the sport I’ve always loved!  I became very close with my team players and although they have graduated, we still remain in contact.

Intramural soccer is very laid back, it lasts about 4 weeks with the possibility of going to playoffs.  This is a great alternative if you want to stay fit and play for fun without wasting too much time traveling!

This semester’s intramural soccer sign up deadline has ended, but keep a look out for spring’s semester’s deadline!  Click the link to stay up to date.

I Believe That We Will Win

I Believe That We Will Win

In 1963 Loyola University Chicago became the first and last school in Illinois to win a NCAA Basketball Championship. Although we were once a¬†formidable¬†foe in the nation, our status has declined slightly. We’re in an interesting position as we are rebuilding our team and revamping all athletics at Loyola. The problem I am faced with is I love this school and I love cheering for our teams whether we are winning or loosing.

Over the past couple weeks a group of students which I’m involved with have been working on what I believe is the most important part of the college sporting environment; a real student section. We have created new cheers, started advertising more and are simply trying to get our student body to understand we have couple of teams currently doing very well that they should support. Men’s Soccer won the Horizon League this last fall, James McLachlan just broke his 4th school record in track and field and our mens volleyball team is ranked 14th in the Nation after there wins over St. Francis and George Mason this past weekend.

There are things to cheer about, so come and join me in supporting our Loyola athletes.
