Letter to the Editor: Reader supports intramural sports

To Bennett Durando:

I really enjoyed your article in the September Echo.

I just grabbed my yearbook and counted up the number of intramural basketball players who were part of the program when I was in high school, back in the dark ages.  There were 180.  For volleyball, there were 240.  Twelve teams for each sport!

The Varsity players kind of ran the whole thing. They set up the schedule, served as refs, etc. We played games once a week.
Amazing how something so big could completely vanish from the high school scene. I agree with all your points, particularly the wellness benefits of “less competitive sports” programs.  Seems like it’s time for a resurrection.

Good luck getting access to the gym.
