Okay. Hike. Run up 20 yards. Sharp cut left. Stop. Duck right. Yes, I’m open. See QB. QB sees me. I’m open. Wait, I’m open. QB sees me open. Wait, QB has locked in. QB is throwing the ball to me. I’m open. This is it. I have to catch this ball. It’s coming. It’s flying. I’m still open. Hands up. In the diamond. That’s how you do it, yea? Yes! Okay, hands up, oh my gosh. Here we go. CATCH. I caught the ball. TOUCHDOWN! First points up on the board. No way had I just done that! Hold on though, I totally just did that.

If you’re like me, being a part of a team can mean more than playing the sport itself. That is, when you have a team that starts to feel less like people you occasionally play with and more like friends you work to win with. Joining Campus Recreation’s intramural league has been the highlight of my soon to be quick two years at Temple University. It’s not just about the play, it’s about the team. My girls and I, we’re on a mission.

Swim for MS is a water-based event that can be done in any pool, at any time. Campus Recreation’s Community Service Crew has hosted a Swim for MS day, during regular pool hours at Pearson Pool 30, for the past few years. While each year has been a success, we need your help in continuing this success for the 2016 MS Awareness Month of March.
February has been a busy month for many of the clubs, as they are squeezing in competition before they leave for Spring Break.
The Bowling Club hit a huge milestone for the program, as two weekends ago they earned their first tournament victory of the year at the West Chester CC Tournament. Even better, this victory will serve as a historic win, as it is the first tournament victory for the program.
Temple Club Roller Hockey took their talents to North Arlington, New Jersey on January 30th to participate in a tournament. The Division I team opened up the tournament with a 6-2 win over the University of Rhode Island. They then faced stiffed competition from Farmingdale State University, and came up short with a 4-2 loss. However, they gathered themselves and ended the weekend on a positive note with a 5-0 victory over Northeastern University. Goaltender, Stephen Jastrow earned his first shutout of the season in this win. Congratulations!
