Four San Diego State University students teamed up to win the 2013 American Collegiate Intramural Sports Fitness National Championships

Ten universities from across the country competed, with teams comprised of two women and two men. There were four different events at this year’s competition, which was held at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista.
The winning Aztec team was made up of SDSU student and Aztec Recreation Center employee Aimee Orozco, Mike Nguyen, Jack Waddell and Lindsay Miller.
About the competition

The competition was held in April, but will air on television later this month. It consisted of four events, including:
  • Navy Seal Obstacle course
  • BMX race 
  • Beach volleyball match

 The winners were determined by totaling all of the team times for each event. The final score for SDSU was 68, a four-point lead over the next closest competitor. Teams from Baylor University and Cornell University tied for second with 64 points each. Other competitors included:
  • University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
  • California State University Long Beach
  • University of Wisconsin, Whitewater
