The event was comprised of three different competitions: the 3-point shoot, relay and slam dunk. The 3-point shoot and relay had men’s and women’s divisions.
The 3-point shoot participants competed for three slots in the championship round. Braden Bradshaw won the men’s competition and Syvannah Bird won the women’s competition.
“Refereeing tonight was really fun, it wasn’t about being technical or about exactness, precision, just about making sure everyone had fun,” said Andy Ordonez, a senior studying communication and a referee for the event.
“I just think it’s a fun activity and I look forward to every year,” said Dachelle Caegle, a senior studying therapeutic recreation.
Audience members participated in the championship during mini-games, some of which were sponsored by student IBC companies, like Wickalicious.
Proform Airborne performed their jump rope routine during half-time.
The slam dunk finalists were selected during an audition and performed their best dunks for judges and the audience, who voted on the best dunker. Jarom Scott won the title of slam dunk champion by one point.
