A glance into the extreme, high-octane world of intramural basketball. 

Intramural sports are a growing part of the CB community with soccer and football being added this year. Of course, the most popular sport in CB intramurals is basketball. IM Hoops has been going on at CB since 2004 after being discontinued in the ’90s. It was brought back when Mr. Armando Diaz ’94 came back to work at CB.

Mr. Diaz claims that intramural sports should be as big a part of high school culture as they are college.

“It prepares the students for college life,” Mr. Diaz says. “Intramural sports are a big part of college life”.

This year there are two new girls teams: Undefeated featuring Jackie Ocampo (’17), Erin Chelini (’17), Rachel Obmann (’17), and Katie Munton (’17) and CO2 featuring Alice Wong (’18), Zori Miller (’18), Claire Jahns (’18), and Monet Brown (’18).

Shaqtown, the winning intramural basketball team from last year (Joe McNamara (’16), Jackson Balantac (’16), Davis Yasuda (’16), and Cameron Johnson (’16)) is certainly looking repeat as they have changed their team name to The Repeats.

“They’re playing intramurals, while we’re playing varsity,” says Jackson Balantac, attacking the competition.

The Sabtown Brooks, featuring David Iniguez (’16) and Joel Jimenez (’16), also believe they have a good chance of winning a championship.

“There is a zero percent chance of us not making it the championship,” David says. “It is not imaginable.”

The Sabtown Brooks are off to a rocky start however after losing to GOAT.

GOAT (Anthony Davis (’17), Tyler Vander Waal (’17), Nico Orr (’17), Raul Arambula (’17)) is looking like a very competitive team with three players standing over 6′ feet.

“If GOAT sees the Sabtown Brooks in playoffs it is an automatic loss for the Brooks,” Anthony says.

The competition is heating up and this season for intramural basketball is looking like the best one yet.
