Intramural Battleship is a success!

In the first ever Intramural Battleship event, 11 boats fought on the high seas of Ruef Natatorium. Heats of boats strove to sink the competition by tossing water in opposing ships (canoes) using buckets. One shield (yoga mat or kickboard) was furnished to each boat to defend against incoming attacks. In the end only one team could emerge victorious. Congrats to Dinner Club, winners of the 2014 "Battle."
