Mission: IM Bocce Ball Wins 2016 Summer League


Austin Svec, Matthew Dorwart and Kevin Selting of team Mission: IM Bocce Ball 

This time Matthew Dorwart and his teammates would not settle for second or third and they defeated Asian Persuasion for the Bocce Ball League Championship in the UNMC Intramural League.

Austin Svec, Matthew Dorwart, Kevin Selting, Charlie Treinen, and Brent Moravec met in the UNMC Masters of Medical Anatomy program. They have teamed up to win two intramural basketball championships, along with a runner up in Curling and a previous third place finish in Bocce Ball.

The key to their success says Captain Dorwart is that they play together as a team exceptionally well. The five students are now in UNMC’s Medical School.


Peter Sam, Travis Patrick Martin and Kevin Sun finished runners-up for the second bocce ball season in a row.



Odds and Predictions on the Bocce Ball tournament

5:45 PM Deboccery V Mission IM Bocce Ball

Pick: Deboccery

Odds against winning the 2016 Bocce Ball Championship:

7 – 1       Mission IM Bocce Ball

10 – 1     Asian Persuasion


Sean Erickson, Mike Hammond, Rick Fulton and Kris Hammond of team Bocce Lee. 

In the match – up of Bocce Lee V Asian Persuasion, Bocce Lee is one of only two teams to defeat Asian Persuasion in the two Bocce Ball leagues we have had here. It seems Bocce Lee has their number and we predict an upset of the number one seed Asian Persuasion. Bocce Lee is the lowest seeded team left in the tournament.

In the other semi-final match up, the defending champion Deboccery takes on Mission IM Bocce . Mission IM Bocce has been close to winning both the curling league and Bocce Ball leagues. But they can not seem to get over the top and the defending Champs Deboccery is playing well. Pick Deboccery

Disc Golf Update July 20th


With three weeks to go in the Disc Golf League, Tyler Scherr leads with Adam Felber close behind. The league plays at the Treasure Cove Course on the campus of Iowa Western college campus.



Intramural Golf Update July 21st, 2016


The top three teams all won big last week in the UNMC Intramural Golf League. With three weeks, 30 points, to go, it looks like either the Fringe Drinkers, Going Golfing, or Shankapotamus will win the regular season league title.

All three of those teams play lower division teams this week. Shank and Going Golfing need to make up 14 points on the Fringe Drinkers to catch them. Not much of a margin of error left for the teams chasing the Fringe Drinkers.

Deb Petersen of the team Par None scored the year low net score last week when she had a 42 with a handicap of 14 on the front nine at Elmwood.

Golf League Update July 14th, 2016

GOLF2016-9_Page_1 GOLF2016-9_Page_2

Another very good week for the Fringe Drinkers puts them almost in command for the regular season title. Fringe Drinkers, behind Catherine Etheridge’s week low net score, beat second place Going Golfing by 9.5 to 0.5.

Now the Fringe Drinkers have a 14 point lead over Shankapotamus and Going Golfing. There are four weeks left in the regular season, worth 40 points. If the Fringe Drinkers win half of the 40, and they have been winning at a 72% clip, then the second place teams have to go 34 and 6 to tie at 85 points. Sounds like a tall order.




Where My Pitches At Wins 2016 Softball Title


Nathan, Clint, Brian, Taylor, Brittni, Seth, Marcus, Alyssa, Captain Brittney Etzmann, and Connor of team Where My Pitches At

A softball team made up of Physical Therapy students at UNMC won the 2016 Intramural Softball League.

The team cruised through the playoffs, winning the title game 10 to 0 over 99 Problems. In fact Where My Pitches At did not lose a game all year; going 9 and 0. Pitcher Seth Wardyn threw a shut-out in the final, the second shut-out he pitched this season. He rode excellent defense from his teammates to his two shut outs.

The now second-year PT students added this title to their two volleyball titles of the last two semesters.

Next fall, we will see if their domination continues.


Connor Zumpfe’s team won the softball title on his 24th birthday. 


Bocce Ball Standings July 8th 2016

League Commissioner Tyler Scheer has some recommendations for the Disc Golf league:

“Hey Everyone!

Today we kick off the 2nd half of the season which will be played on the Treasure Cove Course (Treasure Cove Info) at Iowa Western (Iowa Western Map). The first hole tee’s off adjacent to an easy-to-see gazebo between the ART and ASH buildings, so plan on parking in B6 or B7 (http://www.iwcc.edu/About/map.asp). If you’d like a ride from campus, I’ve got room for one more so please just text or call before 5pm (cell # is listed below). Also, please text or call if you are running late/aren’t going to make it so we aren’t waiting around for too long after 6pm!”

Last week THREE teams went 10 and 0; a perfect night. Shankapotamus, Going Golfing, and Teed Off all won ten points.

A year-low net score was established by the Bird Dawgs Gaelle Spagnoi, who netted a 28.
