John Houbeck ‘16- As the intramural basketball season rolls into Romeo High School, teams look to rebuild and get ready for a championship run.

“This season may be taken more serious than the actual high school season, because it’s my senior year and I’m not leaving without a championship,” Tundra member Brendan Banach ‘16 said.

Two days a week the gym fills up with players, fans, and parents coming to spectate intramural basketball. Being more laid back and fun, intramural basketball is organized for students who do not play for the high school team.

Alumni in the past note that if you aren’t looking to play basketball competitively, intramurals are the next best thing.

“Intramural basketball was one of my favorite memories of senior year,” Romeo alum Brandon Thomas said. “We also won the championship and destroyed every team. That’s something I will never forget.”

Fighting for the best record and top seed, eleven teams plan on taking the floor this year. Freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors all put together teams in attempt to win the championship.

Many believe this years’ team to beat is The Super Tundra, led by ex varsity player, Andrew Medaugh ‘16.

“We added a couple people this year, including myself and the team is looking strong,” Medaugh said.

Looking to challenge The Super Tundra and compete for a title, the Rim Shooters do not want to be overlooked.

“We are younger, quicker, and faster than all of these old guys out there,” Rim Shooter member Ryan Medley ‘17 said.

Regardless of who wins, a competitive nature from all participants in intramural basketball will be brought to the table.
