A white and black ball made of rubber has become a unifying tool for students on campus. Actors, writers, musicians and athletes alike have come together for a common bond. This bond is a love for soccer. “I love soccer and I love indoor,” said freshman Stephanie Heinz. Heinz is also a member of the women’s soccer team.

The intramural-soccer teams have embraced the chance to strut their indoor-soccer skills on the basketball court. “I love soccer and it was a good opportunity to get in shape during the winter,” freshman Katie Hernson said as she wiped the sweat from her brow. Hernson is part of the Improv Troupe’s team. The troupe joined the intramural tournament to give them something to do together that did not involve acting.

A lot of students commented on how they enjoyed the easy-going atmosphere. They said that there are no strict rules and everyone is out to have fun. The goalie’s box has been marked with blue tape and students have been selected to act as referees. The bleachers count as the boundaries and penalties are not permitted.

The men’s and women’s soccer teams each have players who are keeping in shape and refining their skills in the tournament. The rest of the teams are filled with students who are not on the organized teams at school.

The Dixon Center’s intramural tournaments are available to all students who want to play a sport on a non-league team. A favorite perk that each player pointed out is that they get to play soccer but that there is no practice.
