The philosophy of the Intramural Sports Department is one of good sportsmanship and fair play by all. In order to encourage proper conduct during contests, officials, supervisors or administrative personnel shall make decisions on whether to warn, penalize or eject players or teams for poor sportsmanship. This includes conduct directed toward officials.

Participants/Teams ejected from any contest are suspended for 3 consecutive games (including play-offs). This is a minimum. Further penalty may be invoked depending upon the infraction.

Drinking of alcoholic beverages on the field or court by any player or spectator is strictly prohibited. Breach of this by-law will result in the elimination of the offending party or parties from intramural participation for the remainder of the season.

 


Nate Backes
Seattle, Wash.
Bishop Blanchet HS

Nate Backes went on a tear last week, tallying at least one hit in all four games the Loggers played en route to a 3-1 record and a series sweep of Lewis & Clark. Backes had multiple hits in three of the four games and went 3-for-4 in the series finale against the Pioneers on April 13. In that contest he ripped a double and legged out a triple, falling just a homer short of the cycle. With the base knocks he brought in three RBIs for the Loggers while scoring two himself, accounting for five of the Loggers' 11 runs on the day. In all he tallied eight hits, five runs, and eight RBIs last week, hitting for an even .500 average. Thanks to the hot bat, he leads the Loggers in batting average, RBIs, doubles, homeruns, and is tied for the lead in hits. Backes and the rest of the Puget Sound baseball squad travel to Forest Grove, Ore., for a three-game series at Pacific this season.
