Intramural sports not worth space
b-ball showdown," Mar. 21
To the Editor:
I was quite surprised to see a half page article written on the Men's
Super League Tier I Basketball Championship in The Gazette. While
all of us in the Intramural Sports program always appreciate a little
positive recognition from the school paper, I find it odd that The
Gazette would publish a half page article on an intramural game when
many of our varsity teams don't even get a quarter page article.
I have been an employee with Intramurals for four years now, but have also been involved with women's varsity hockey in some capacity over the past three years and I have seen how The Gazette doesn't give a lot of recognition towards the smaller varsity teams on campus unless they shine, or suffer from lack of success.
While I love our Intramural Sports program, I think most of the students
at Western would like to see a little more news about the varsity teams
they help fund, as opposed to an article about an intramural game written
mostly because someone on the team was friends with a member of The
UWO Intramural Sports - Assistant Coordinator
UWO Women's Hockey - Team Manager
