Intramural sports held its only Singles Bowling Tournament of the semester on Sept. 6 at Striker’s Bowling Alley with 42 participants

An Le, computer engineering major from Fort Smith, was one of the competitors in the tournament.

“I played doubles last year. I didn’t know about the singles tournament until this year,” Le said. “It’s really fun to see my friends here.”

Kaelyn Mills, graduate assistant for intramural and club sports, said events such as the Singles Bowling Tournament are beneficial for many students.

“It’s a great way for freshmen to go out and meet people through Tuesday tournaments, because most of the time those are only one person teams, so you don’t have to make a team or have friends lined out to play a sport with you,” Mills said. “It just opens more doors to make friends.”

The singles tournament was the second of the Tuesday tournaments this semester. There are eight more Tuesday tournaments scheduled for the fall season, with the next one being a two-man golf scramble on Sept. 19.

This semester is packed with other sports such as flag football, softball and basketball, Mills added.

“Flag football season coming up pretty soon. it’ll start Sept. 20,” Mills said. “That’s going to be a huge season; usually a lot of teams sign up for that.”
