There’s no rush or pledging to join “Process,” and you won’t find its members living together in a fraternity house. But as of Monday, this group of friends stood first in the men’s Greek intramural standings, holding a precarious two-point lead over second-place FIJI, 246 points to 244.

The top four teams in the women’s Greek division have maintained the same positions on the leader board since early October, with Alpha Gamma Delta in first place (215 points) and Tri Delta a relatively close second (199 points). Keefe Hall maintained its supremacy in both the men’s and women’s residence hall divisions, with leads of 208 to 135 and 40 to 30, respectively. (Complete standings in the race for the 2001-02 McGaughey Trophy are listed at the end of this article.)

Alpha Phi defeated Delta Gamma, 10-7, in the title game to take the women’s three-on-three basketball championship. Another Alpha Phi team finished in third place among the six-team field. Games for men’s and women’s basketball ran from Oct. 28-Nov. 18 in Kamine Gymnasium of Kirby Sports Center.

In the men’s division, independent teams finished in the top three places of over-six-foot, three-on-three basketball, which included nine squads. Comprised of Eric Smoczynski, Sam Innes, Ben Saxton, Jared Mast, and Josh Sullivan, “Don’t Talk to Us” lost just one game in the regular season before defeating “Derek Zoolander’s Team,” 15-12, in the championship. Independent team “Sick Wit It” and “Whatever it Takes” (Watson Hall) tied for third.

In the under-six-foot category, which included 12 teams, independents Kevin McCabe, Dave Recco, and Justin Mihlinec of “Sweeny II” defeated Zeta Psi, 15-11, in the finals after losing just two games in the regular season. Chi Phi and a second Zeta Psi team tied for third place.

Alpha Phi took first place in women’s walleyball, topping runner-up Alpha Gamma Delta in the title match during its undefeated run. The winning team was comprised of Christine Bender, Caitlin Goos, and Lauren Mack. On the men’s side, PT Farinon’s early struggles sent it into the loser’s bracket before the residence hall squad came back to beat Phi Psi twice for the championship. The team included Matt Root, Benjamin Berlow, Lauren Hugel, and Brian Jennings. Eight teams of four players each played in a format of best-of-three games, first up to 15 by rally points, with the title games taking place Nov. 11.

A total of 48 men and 24 women competed twice weekly in separate indoor volleyball tournaments, which featured a total of 36 matches from Oct. 23 through Nov. 13 in Kamine Gymnasium of Kirby Sports Center. Although International Students Association was undefeated going into the finals, Alpha Phi won the women’s tourney, defeating Pi Phi two games to one in the championship match. The winning team included Most Valuable Player Lauren Mack, Caitlin Goos, Christine Bender, and Lauren Sefcik.

Despite losing to Process during the regular season, Kappa Delta Rho came up big in the finals of the men’s division, winning a hotly contested, seesaw battle in game three, 15-13. The KDR team included MVP Wayne Scott, James Labuz, Keith O’Brien, Chris Monohan, Can Traitt, and Alex Karpetian. Phi Psi finished third in the tournament.

Robbie Andrews of Delta Upsilon dug himself a hole by losing in the third round of 9-Ball Billiards, which took place in early November on four tables on the third floor of Kirby Sports Center. However, the gritty pool shark came back to earn a berth in the finals and prevail, two games to one. He was followed by Merhawi Redda of International Students Association and Kevin Colantropo of FIJI. On the women’s side, Danielle Neufell earned the gold for Tri-Delta.

Already a winner in the co-ed spades tournament (along with Reco Collins),
George Taylor struck again for Brothers of Lafayette, making an undefeated run in the co-ed chess tournament, which was hosted by Gilbert’s Oct. 21-23. Among the 11 men and four women competing in a total of 28 matches on five boards, independent Ben Saxton finished second and Josh Grubman of Phi Psi was third.
