The Phi Delta Theta and Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternities formed five teams to battle it out in ultimate Frisbee intramurals Monday in the South Quad.

Students have played their own ultimate Frisbee games on the lawn, so Adam Plax, sophomore business major and intramural chairman of Campus Activities Board, organized an official game.

“Intramurals is the first thing I got involved with on campus and it’s something I am very passionate about,” Plax said.

“When I was named intramurals chair for CAB, I wanted to bring something new and something that hasn’t been done on campus,” he said.

Plax also refereed during the tournament.

“Having this ultimate Frisbee tournament, I thought, was going to bring new things to intramural games and start opening up new, different sports that people are passionate about,” Plax said.

The teams lined up along the field to cheer on the other teams as they rotated through the games.

“Honestly this game is amazing, SAE has been playing ultimate Frisbee out here for about two years and that is just awesome,” said Adam Cusic, junior physics major and a player for the Sigma Alpha Epsilon Two team.

The first game to start was between the teams Phi Delta Theta Gold and Sigma Alpha Epsilon One.

It was a close game, with the two teams matching each other point for point. The score was tied at two going into the halftime, but Phi Delta Theta Gold pulled through, winning the game 3-2.

The second game was between the teams Phi Delta Theta Blue and Sigma Alpha Epsilon Two.

Sigma Alpha Epsilon Two started the game strong, scoring a point in the first minute. The team continued to increase its lead against Phi Delta Theta Blue after halftime, winning at 5-1.

The third round was a close game between Phikeia and Phi Delta Theta Gold.

The two teams kept it tied for most of the game, with Phikeia scoring last minute and winning the game, 2-1.

Sigma Alpha Epsilon One and Phi Delta Theta Blue competed against each other in the fourth game.

The two teams followed each other closely initially. Sigma Alpha Epsilon One came out of half time strong and scored four points, finishing the game with a score of 6-1.

The final game was between the teams Phikeia and Sigma Alpha Epsilon Two.

Rachel Stewart, freshman business major and player for the team Phikeia, scored the first point for the team, putting them in the lead.

Phikeia continued to score against Sigma Alpha Epsilon Two and won, 6-0.

The Phikeia team came in first place overall in the games.

“It gets heated but it’s healthy competition,” Cusic said. “At the end of the night we can shake each other’s hands and just deal with it.”
