Intramurals (IMs)

Silliman was a THREE TIME TYng Cup Champion (2006, 2007, 2008)! Help Silliman take back the Tyng this year! Get in touch with the secretaries and try to play at least one sport each season. Play Soccer against Pierson or inner tube water polo against JE! All students - regardless of ability - are invited to defend the Silliman banner against other colleges in intramural competitions. The college that scores the most points in intramural competition is awarded the prestigious Tyng Cup. You don’t have to know how to play: we will explain the rules of the game to you, so don’t be shy! It’s a wonderful opportunity to have fun and meet people and take a break from studying. Check the IM white board in Byers Hall for announcements and schedules, and to see which sports are in season.

Fall Sports:  tennis, golf, football, cross-country, and ping pong.

Winter Sports:  volleyball, soccer, basketball, broomball, inner-tube water polo, and squash.

Spring Sports:  softball, dodgeball, soccer, badminton, and spike ball.

Look for Fall IM signups early September!

The IM Team

Blaise Fangman

Blaise is a sophomore from near Masonville, IA whose favorite IM sport is broomball because he enjoys sliding around on ice and crashing into people. He believes the two essential preparations for any IM match are running to East Rock while listening to “Holding Out for a Hero” and convincing all of your friends to also ignore their homework and play IMs. Outside of Silliman, Blaise is technically a member of Yale’s club Squash team; however, he has only ever beaten Jackson. Blaise is excited to continue bonding with his fellow Sillimanders while celebrating their countless victories over TD, and he is always willing to stop and chat so make sure to greet him if you see him around!

Jackson Kuller

Jackson is a junior studying Econ from Atlanta, Georgia. You can usually find him watching movies or TV in Silliflix for “IM email research.” If you see him around campus, be sure to ask about his favorite broomball plays or the most interesting thing he learned in Ichthyology. He’s always happy to chat, especially when it involves intense planning for how to beat TD next.

Anthony Mark

Anthony is a junior from San Francisco. He enjoys watching the Warriors play and then trying (unsuccessfully) to bomb a 30 foot 3-pointer like Stephen Curry. His greatest accomplishment is leading a “TD Sucks” chant during a pep rally first year. If you see him around campus, say hi and he’ll gladly turn it into a psychoanalysis session where he’ll pretend being a psych major makes him qualified to give relationship advice. In any case, he does love sports and would love to chat with you about them, be it IMs or otherwise.

Cami Toro

Cami Toro is a senior majoring in Global Affairs with a certificate in Chinese from Bogota, Colombia. Cami’s Yale career has revolved around Intramurals. Whether it is choosing her classes so they allow her to attend any and all IMs, or simply wearing her Silliman gear wherever she goes, Cami is determined to see Silliman win always. She is excited to be an IM coordinator and meet new Sillimanders on the field. Silli-WIN!
