An upcoming softball game between students and faculty will take place on May 8 at the Tejanas’ softball field starting at 11 a.m. The event is part of the intramural sports program at EPCC.
“The softball game between students against faculty will be a great activity for everyone to have fun and to just join as a community,” Louis Hernandez, intramural sports manager, said. “Anyone who is a student can sign up and have fun.”
Students and faculty can sign up to participate at the EPCC Valle Verde gymnasium and have until game day, May 8, before the first pitch, to put their name on the roster.

Tejanas softball field will host the faculty vs. student softball
game on May 8. First pitch is at 11 a.m.
A seven inning game will be played. There is no limit to the number of people who can sign up.
“The earlier you get your name in, the more secure your spot is,” Hernandez said. “We will try and get everyone in to play at least an inning, whether it be fielding or hitting. Doing special events like this gets peoples’ attention. It impacts the community for people to come and be part of intramural sports and for the program to keep growing, as it has been growing.”
Other than the softball game, students are welcome to use the program’s equipment and participate in other sport activities.
Calling the program’s facilities great, EPCC student Miguel Villado said intramural activities are a great opportunity for those wishing to be healthy.
“We all help each other out and we come together to live a different lifestyle,” he said. “The free equipment is very useful for us [students] because some students don’t work and don’t have the money for a gym membership. Having this program open for students and for non students, I believe, impacts the community.”
Intramural sports hours for students and non students are as follows: Monday and Wednesday from noon to 8:30 p.m., Tuesday and Thursday from 1 to 8:30 p.m. and Friday from noon to 3:45 p.m.
