UTC student Marcus Hunt says her plays intramural basketball, volleyball, softball, and flag football.

“I like to play intramurals because it gives me time to hang out with my friends and do athletic stuff while competing against other students,” Hunt said.

Williams says that on top of intramurals being a positive recreation for students, intramurals also helps to create jobs for students such as referees, scorekeepers and sited directors.

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP/The Loop) — An autopsy shows that complications from a gunshot wound to the abdomen is the cause of death of a Tennessee man whose body was found in Monroe County on Friday.

County Coroner Alan Gurley tells the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal (http://bit.ly/p0iy24 ) that Stephen Cronk likely would have survived had he sought medical treatment.

Mt. Juliet, Tenn., police, say an 18-year-old woman was abducted at gunpoint by Cronk. Cronk then drove to Aberdeen, where he rented a hotel room and forced the victim to perform sexual acts.

The victim grabbed Cronk’s handgun when he became distracted. She fired once, striking Cronk in the stomach. He fled and the victim barricaded herself in the room and called 911.

Cronk was found dead inside his vehicle at a gas station in Hamilton, Miss.
