Agronomy Students Become Intramural Euchre Champions

March 18, 2021

 

Jenna Cowan and Alyssa Swehla were the Iowa State Intramural Euchre Champions. The two seniors met at the Freshmen Agronomy Field Trip and have been friends ever since. Both of these seniors are majoring in Agronomy. Alyssa also majors in Global Resource Systems and minors in Sustainability. Besides her Agronomy major, Jenna also is minoring in Sustainability. Alyssa learned how to play euchre from her dad while growing up and has always enjoyed playing cards. Jenna learned how to play euchre from Alyssa during their sophomore year. The two even host regular euchre nights for their friends. They have learned how to complement each other’s moves and dominate games. 

The intramural tournament was a single-elimination bracket consisting of 16 competitive teams. The games were played in increments of 10 minutes rather than playing to point totals. Whichever team had the most points at the end of the time limit advanced to the next round. The agronomy duo won a total of 5 games in a row, leading them to claim the title of champions. They remained undefeated throughout the entire tournament. The tournament took place in the Memorial Union. The Agronomy Department is proud to be the home to these two successful seniors!
