This past Tuesday, Intramural Water polo, Ball Hockey, Soccer and Ultimate Frisbee came to an end for another semester, with four squadrons coming away victorious.

After playing a strong season, the Ball Hockey finalists squared off against each other in the field house where 11 squadron was able to earn the title as champions. Following numerous wins in the regular season, they played 3 squadron in the semi-finals and then defeated 10 squadron in the finals. In water polo, 7 squadron reigned victorious as they fought a tough match, bringing down 13 squadron with a final score of 14-10. For the cadets who enjoy the cold weather, they endured Tuesday night’s drop in temperature to compete in the championship games for ultimate frisbee and soccer. In a well-played ultimate match against 2 squadron, 8 squadron was able to edge out a 5-2 victory and thus completing their undefeated season. The championship soccer match was held between 3 squadron and 12 squadron, with 12 squadron taking the trophy for the second year in a row! In the final Sandhurst IM challenge held Thursday, Nov, 18th, B division (5,6,7 sqn) came out on top with A division (1,2,3,4 sqn) coming in a close second. Congratulations to all the participants who fought strong that evening in the competition.

To conclude the season, the cadets gathered on the morning of Wednesday 24 November, to hold the traditional IM awards ceremony parade where all of the squadrons came out to recognize the winning IM teams, the 450 t-shirt recipients and find out the following semester’s new top barslate. The MVP’s, MSP’s and best referees for each sport were also recognized (see below). Congratulations go out to all of the award recipients as they put forth an exceptional effort and set the example for the rest of the cadet wing.

This semesters IM season has been yet another success and I would like to thank all the cadets who participated, as they put forth an excellent effort and showed their squadron pride. Congratulations to all the winners of this year IMs and we look forward to seeing the same spirit in the winter term. Please note that due to unfortunate circumstances, the Ice Hockey playoff games will begin this coming Tuesday 30 November with the semi-finals beginning at 1845 and the championship games to be held Thursday, Dec 2nd commencing at 1900 at the Constantine arena. Come on out and support the teams as they compete for the winning title!
