NOVA Intramurals and Recreation is all about engaging with students on multiple levels and delivering a product to enhance their overall wellness. The various activities implemented by the Intramurals and Recreation Department across all of NOVA’s campuses are to not only enrich the students’ social skills and physical activity but to also give them a sense of purpose on campus outside of academics.
On February 23, the Intramurals and Recreation Department hosted a faculty/staff versus students basketball game in the Ernst Cultural Gym on the Annandale Campus. This was the third annual matchup between the two teams. The previous matches were split with the students winning the last game, defeating the faculty/staff team by 16 points.
“Speed and youth was a major killer the last game, so we had to regroup and bring a different strategy this time and it worked,” said Annandale Interim Campus Registrar Sean Fitzmaurice. The faculty/staff defeated the students 89-72 to reclaim the trophy that was earned last year by the student team.
“Providing opportunities for faculty/staff to compete against students presents participants the chance to engage on a different level, compete in a fun environment and most importantly helps improve the campus community,” said CJ Jackson, college-wide intramural and recreation coordinator.
Intramural and recreation activities are open to all NOVA students, faculty and staff. To participate in any intramural and recreation activity go online and register. Make sure to also check out NOVA Intramural Sports’ Facebook page.
