Winter Quarter was packed with opportunities for Cal Poly Pomona (CPP) students to get involved in ASI Campus Recreation Intramural Sports (IM Sports)! Some of the special-event highlights include the Kickball Tournament, Swim Meet and 3-Point Shootout. In addition to those, volleyball, basketball, indoor soccer and dodgeball each had leagues that have now come to a close. The leagues were five weeks long, with the top teams qualifying for playoffs, which were held during Week 10. Teams suited up for one final playoff push before buckling down for finals, and champions emerged. Here’s a recap of the IM Sports Championship Week.
IM Sports are single elimination, so teams that lost one game lost their chance to win the trophy and an exclusive Winter 2017 championship t-shirt. Here were the rankings for each sport heading into playoffs and the winner of each division.

The road to IM Sports Championship Week is not easy. It involves team chemistry, persistence and dedication. Some teams have to play multiple games during Championship Week in order to work their way to the top of their bracket. Despite the challenges, 13 teams showed that they had what it takes to make it into the IM Sports Trophy Case! Check out their photos on our website or next to our trophies next quarter at the BRIC (Bldg. 42)!
