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.

Shandra Ahsan

Shandra is a sophomore studying biomedical engineering from Amarillo, Texas. Shandra was a cheerleader back in her heyday, so she knows a thing or two about school spirit, and she is excited to spread the Sillispirit through IMs this year. In her free time, Shandra enjoys losing at corn hole and being too scared to play ping pong. Her favorite thing about IMs is arguing about whether pickle ball is a small game of tennis or a large game of ping pong. If you see her around campus, be sure to ask her where in Texas she’s from so she can pull out her Texas hand puppet.
