Sports Brief: September 15

Intramural Update

The flag football season is underway at Oklahoma Christian University.

The Men’s A league is off to a quiet start relative to the other leagues. Due to only 4 teams competing, the games are spread out, giving clubs plenty of time to rest their star players. The result is tight games coming down to the wire, with Kappa Sigma Tau beating Delta Gamma Sigma 22-18, and Chi Lambda Phi beating the freshmen class 28-16. Kappa’s win over Delta finally puts them in the all-sports standings, although they still have a lot of ground to cover if they are to contend for first.

The women of Gamma Rho have kept their momentum from winning the softball championship, leading the flag football standings with a record of 3-0. Their wins come from the Iota, Theta and Lambda. 

“The Old Guys” have been tearing up the men’s B league. While they will not compete in the playoffs regardless of their record, the team composed of Oklahoma Christian faculty, mainly the men’s basketball coaching staff, boasts a 4-0 record thanks to wins over Psi Epsilon, Kappa, Delta and Chi. 

The other three teams in the men’s B league, Delta, Chi, and the freshmen, all stand with 2 wins a piece. While Chi has yet to play Delta, they have beat the freshmen 26-6. However, a 20-18 win over Delta places the freshmen in a good position to finish top two in the league heading into the playoffs. For now, Chi leads in overall score differential. 

Here are the current all-sports standings:


Chi: 164

Delta: 124

Freshmen: 84

Upperclassmen: 60

Kappa: 10

Psi: 7

Alpha: 0


Gamma: 190

Upperclassmen: 130
