Student Government Association brings intramural sports back to Motlow State
Motlow State Community College is bringing intramural sports back to the Moore County campus to increase student engagement and school spirit. A kickball competition event was recently held pitting students against faculty and staff. Future intramural plans include basketball, dodge ball and beach volleyball.
LYNCHBURG, TN (Sept. 21, 2016) — Motlow State Community College is bringing intramural sports back to the Moore County campus beginning this fall semester.
The program "kicked off" recently with kickball competition between students and faculty/staff at the softball field, with the students winning the overall contest. Over 40 students signed up to participate, providing a strong turnout for the event on a beautiful, but quite warm, late summer day.
"So many students have a desire to get on the field and play without necessarily being in sports or on a team," said Kirsten Moss, dean of students at Motlow State. "Bringing intramurals back to Motlow is one way to increase student engagement, bolster Motlow pride, and make lasting connections."
The Moore County chapter of the Student Government Association (SGA) organized and ran the event, acting on suggestions received from the student body.
"Our main objective is to create an intramural program that will have competitiveness and require students to work together and interact," said Jordan Scott, Moore County campus SGA vice president and program organizer. "The SGA did a wonderful job preparing for this event and assisting me with the creation of this new extracurricular activity."
The SGA is planning upcoming events of basketball, dodge ball and beach volleyball, and will be assisted by the Tullahoma Parks and Recreation department.
