Bowling Pin Shoot
6:30 – 8:30pm
Shooting Sports Education Center
This is a handgun match that is a great way for those new to shooting competition to get started and for those with a lot of experience to show off in a tough competition. Bowling pins are a dynamic target, if you hit them off center they tend to fall down instead of going off the table. Once they’re lying down they’ll usually spin when hit on the ends instead of going off the table. These factors make the simple statement of “clear the table of 5 pins” more challenging than it sounds.

Club Sports programs receive local and national attention

It has been quite the year for Campus Recreation and Intramurals’ Club Sports programs. On Sunday, April 29, the Club Sports program held their annual end of the year awards banquet. For the 2017-2018 sports year, Eagle Disc Golf, the Disc Golf club, was awarded Club of the Year honors. The Club of the Year award is presented to the club which has made outstanding contributions to the Club Sports program, and continuously takes great strides to improve their club. The Disc Golf club excelled all year, surpassing all expectation and requirements, both on and off the field. They serve as a role model to other teams in the areas of service, on/off-campus involvement, attendance, communication, participation, recruitment, teamwork, leadership and how they operate as a club. They take great pride and ownership in their club and its success, including finishing in the top Gold Level (only other Club to do so was Equestrian) for the Wings Incentive program. Also named at the Club Sports Banquet was the Men’s Lacrosse Team for most improved club.

The Wings Incentive Program was established to recognize those organizations who make it a priority to improve themselves as a whole, and the experience of each of their members. The program aims to provide opportunities for organizations to earn points from meaningful and productive experiences.

Throughout the year we’ve had many of our Club Sports programs get some attention both regionally and nationally. Our Quiddich team was interviewed on WSAV for the evening news and our Equestrian team had several members were named IHSA National All-Academic Award recipients, just to name a couple highlights. Additionally, several of our teams and individuals have gone on to/will be going to compete in their respective regional and national tournaments.


Injury Prevention & Care cares about your physical well-being

Athletic trainers are known for their quick responses to an injury that has occurred during some form of physical exercise. However, here at Campus Recreation and Intramurals (CRI), their duties extend beyond just being a response team.
The Injury Prevention and Care team (IPC) consists of three athletic trainers who are focused on not only attending to injuries, but also working to prevent injuries from happening to those who are either working out, playing hoops or taking advantage of the many other activities the RAC has to offer.

Cory Gentile, MS, LAT, ATC, PES

“Athletic trainers specialize in prevention of injury, clinical evaluation and diagnosis, immediate care, treatment, and rehabilitation,” said Cory Gentile, Coordinator for IPC.
The IPC staff has truly embraced their prevention mantra and want the patrons of Campus Recreation and Intramurals (CRI) to know that preventing an injury is just as important as taking the time to decompress after a workout.
Jenna Morogiello, Coordinator for IPC, states that CRI focuses on three areas of prevention: prevention education, pretreatments and corrective exercises. “Reprogramming motor patterns in patients and working on muscle strength are equally as important in furthering the prevention of an injury. Another key aspect of care is prevention education because most patients don’t know if it is too soon to get back to playing or if they should even be playing/participating at all, ” explains Morogiello.

Jenna Morogiello, MS, LAT, ATC, CSCS

Marissa Garcia, a frequent patron of programs at CRI recently sought out the services of IPC. Garcia came to us post-injury to work with Morogiello. One of Garcia’s main takeaways from her treatment with IPC were measures to help prevent future injuries. “The great thing about IPC is that they are not just athletic trainers,” said Garcia, “they really take the time to truly care about what is going on with their patients as well as the injury and that makes a difference. They taught me techniques that will help me avoid injury in the future.”
Injury prevention is important for long-term health and knowing how to keep injuries from happening is just as crucial as learning how to take care of yourself post-injury. IPC helps its patrons with both pre and post treatments, and want you to know that asking questions is essential in learning how best to take care of your body. To ensure the safety and equal opportunity for all patrons, IPC’s services are completely free to those who are members of the RAC.
Hours for IPC are Monday to Thursday from 3-11 p.m. and Sundays from 6-11 p.m.
