Sara Torres (from left), Kristy Urbick and Belinda Hernandez pick up the pieces after a failed attempt to stack the blocks.

Six people attended to see how tall they could build the tower of blocks before it fell.
It was an afternoon of high tension as participants held their breath in anticipation for whatever would happen next. Every time the blocks fell, a loud crash followed, rattling the table.
At the end of the day, the participants found themselves eagerly waiting for the next time they could stack some blocks. The next intramural sports event is a spikeball tournament taking place at 2:30 p.m. on Feb. 24 and March 2 in the gym.
