​We are insanely proud of every single person who participated in the Intramural Open and put themselves out there to be on a team! I know we all had fun – some more than others 😉

​We cannot thank enough, the Team Captains, as well as the Coaching Staff, and most importantly Chris Ciampa and Barnet Cohen for making ALL of this magic happen 4 weeks in a row. Not only is there SO much behind the scenes work to acknowledge, but also if you were not aware, the work didn’t end on Friday afternoons. Often you would find Chris and Barnet in on a Saturday morning and Monday throughout the day to help judge those who couldn’t attend Friday’s class. 

This Intramural Open would NOT be successful without these two – so please when you see them next – give them a BIG thanks and high five for making it all happen. They are two of the most humble people you’ll meet, so make sure to make it loud and clear 🙂 🙂 🙂

Until next year! 
​-Amanda & Sara
