Everything from Tennis and Ultimate Frisbee, to basketball and dodgeball, Intramural sports are a big deal for a lot of students at Snow College. This past Thursday on the 25, the Men’s 5 on 5 basketball team, Radio Shay, consisting of Connor Aste, Mason Shaver, Caden Birch, Drake Reynolds, Scott Hacking, Jamen Miller, and Austin Jackson came back to win their second championship in two semesters against Mendez’s Team.
There is no doubt that team Radio Shay is made up of very talented athletes. When Mason Shaver was asked about the strengths of the team, he answered enthusiastically with, “Scott Hacking dominates the post and dunks, Drake Reynolds has an awesome two handed slam, Caden birch has an unmatched jump shot, Connor Aste handles the defense and hustle for the team, Jamen Miller rules the far distance shots, Austin Jackson is great with always getting things opened up with his drive, and I guess I’m pretty good at the three pointers!”
The game started off really close, with both teams playing neck-to-neck until about five minutes in when Mason Shaver came in with a trio of three pointers, setting Radio Shay on fire. This championship game was incredibly intense with both teams being talented and determined. The game ended with a final score of 102 to 72, with each member of Radio Shay averaging double digit points.
