Say goodbye to winter intramurals and hello to the new spring programs.

Cabrini recreation has just announced the line-up for the next round of intramurals.

After a long winter filled with indoor soccer and rock-climbing, it is time for flag football and softball.

Orlin Jespersen, assistant director of recreation, anxiously awaits spring intramurals.

“I am excited to see what we can get off the ground,” Jespersen said. “We had a great turnout for fall flag football and last spring, soccer and softball were successful.”

Jespersen has worked at Cabrini for five years and has been actively involved in organizing intramurals.

Throughout his experience with intramurals, Jespersen said that he had seen a wide range of people participating in intramurals.

“I’ve seen people who played in high school or played a year or two in college and it became too much so here they can play two Spring intramural line up announced to three times a week,” Jespersen said.

There are also many Cabrini regulars who come to play in the intramurals. Rizwan Ishmal, senior Spanish and secondary education major, has been an active intramural player.

“Intramurals have a great way to take part in a sport you are passionate about,” Ishmal said. “It is a great way to meet people that share a common interest and make friends. My favorite intramural is soccer since I love it. I certainly recommend students getting involved in intramurals. It is a great break from school or work.”

Cabrini students can take a break from their studies this spring and relieve their stress at intramurals.

The spring programs include flag football, five-versus-five indoor soccer, basketball, dodge ball, seven-versus-seven outdoor soccer and softball.

“I am new to the intramural scene,” Justin Rogers, senior accounting major, said. “I think I might try the windsurfing program because I have always wanted to surf via the wind.”

There are also intramurals off campus that students must pay a small fee for. These activities consist of outdoor rock-climbing, canopy tour, windsurfing and windsailing, kayaking, white water rafting and paintball.

“I went white water rafting last fall for the first time ever,” Shannon Santangelo, senior finance and math major, said. “Needless to say, I was very scared but once we got into the raft and went down the river, I started to have the best time.”

Spring intramurals started in late January and will go into May. To play in intramurals, students must sign up at cabrini.athleague.edu.

“The best part about trips like white water rafting is that they are organized through Cabrini Recreation,” Santangelo said. “I probably would not have gone to these intramural trips without Orlin organizing them at an affordable student rate.”
