All protests must be made in writing and submitted to the Intramural Director within 24 hours of the completion of the contest being protested.

Protests must be based on the use of ineligible players or the interpretation of rules. Under no circumstances will judgment calls on the part of an official be grounds for protest.

Contestants and/or team mangers shall be permitted to present their version of the case before a decision is made. The final decision rests upon the Intramural Advisory Council unless the ruling is clearly stated in the Intramural Handbook or Game Rules. In such a case the Intramural Director will make the final ruling.

Games in which a protest is sustained shall be replayed from that point in play deemed most fair and equitable by the Intramural Director. This may involve replaying the contest in its entirety.

 


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.
