Dime time

SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The defending champion Dime Pieces overcame a scrappy and relentless Fearsome Foursome to capture the women’s intramural 3-on-3 title Tuesday night in the Field House in a game that went well over two hours.

Dime Pieces already had lost previously during the season; with the double-elimination format, it had to win four games to capture the championship.

Scoring mostly inside, the Dime Pieces eeked out the victory as the series went 15-13, 18-16, 16-12, 17-19, and 15-9 in the squad’s favor.

“When we lost our first game, I think that was our best and worst moment,” Dime Pieces senior Dani Olerich said. “It made us fight back to win the championship.”

With such a long and exhausting final, the Fearsome Foursome couldn’t cope with the fatigue as the team had no substitutes.

“Playing as many games without a fourth person killed us,” junior McKensey Long said.

Both teams agreed that the marathon of basketball took a toll on their bodies.

“I’m going to sleep like a baby tonight,” junior Liz Bloyer said. “It has already been a long week.”
