Ibis Cup Series

Open All Tabs
  • Rules and Point System

    This point system is a competition that runs from February 4 through February 28 for all HRL teams and individuals from their respective areas. Residents will participate in intramural, fitness, wellness, and outdoor adventure events in which they will earn points based on their performance. At the end, the winning housing area will be declared and will be presented with The Ibis Cup.

    Residential areas will be broken down into 7 categories: UV, Hecht, Stanford, Mahoney, Pearson, Eaton, and Lakeside Village. Teams are to be named after their residential floor or area (i.e. PT 5 or SRC) when registering for the events to receive credit. Activities will be an open, men's or women's division depending on the activity.

    Intramural events with brackets will be based on seedings or random draw depending on the format of the intramural competition. Teams and individuals will be awarded points based on their finish in the bracket. An area will only receive points for their teams best finish. If there is a men’s and a women’s bracket, then both brackets will be counted separately. For example, Eaton finishes 1st and 2nd, therefore, Eaton earns 1st place points only. If Eaton finished 1st place in both the men's and women's bracket then they will be awarded 1st place points for each bracket. If a team forfeits in their first match up, they will not receive points. This also applies to events that have ranking finishes such as climbing wall competition and CrossFit.

    Note: For dedicated events or tournaments (i.e. cornhole and tennis) points will only be awarded for bracket play.
