As a student athlete in high school, I knew the hardest transition of coming to the University of Arkansas was not playing sports every day. I knew intramurals was an option, but I had no idea it was as competitive as it is. I am apart of Kappa Kappa Gamma. Last year I was lucky enough to be put on our Kappa 1 team for basketball. That was my sport. I was so excited to be doing what I love again. We ended up coming in 2nd place. Then earlier this semester I was put on the Kappa 1 flag football team. I am not sure I have ever had so much fun in my life. I played with a group of mostly older girls and a couple freshmen, one being my little. We made it to the finals! However, the weekend before our game I was playing in a 3 on 3-basketball philanthropy event for Pike and rolled my ankle. I have had plenty of injuries in the past, but this was my first time getting hurt in a game of dunk ball I must say. I didn’t get to play in the championship game. We did win, and I cheered on the sideline with a swollen ankle. This is just a small example of how much the University truly has to offer. College is about more than classes and social events. It is about making lasting relationships and memories. I do miss high school sports often. Intramurals has brought me a new way of looking at sports though. I see it as a competition like always, but now its about the fun and relationships I gain along the way. Sports have always had a huge part in my life, and now it still holds a special place in my heart. I have made great friends, memories, and few injuries along the way.
