ASU's intramural flag football team, IM Legends, won two national titles at the University of Central Florida.

The 2012 National Campus Championship Series (NCCS) Flag Football National Championships was held at the University of Central Florida in Orlando from Dec. 31 to Jan. 4.

"I have been on the team for three years and when we won I was glad I could finally say I got a Coed National Championship since this is my last year playing," graduate Noel Johnson said.

IM Legends started the week off by winning the American Collegiate Intramural Sports National Championship (ACIS), followed by the NCCS tournament, in which they had received runner up the previous year.

"I had never played against UCF prior to these two tournaments," graduate student Danielle Walts said. "I know that all of my teammates were really excited about finally beating them."

IM Legends won the NCCA tournament 18-9, and won the ACIS tournament 20-10.

"I have seen them play and knew they were good enough to beat any other team," senior Dreshawn Murray said.

ASU also took female and male teams to the tournament. Both teams were playing about four games a day between all the divisions.

ACIS was hosted by the University of West Florida in "Pensacola, Fla.," and NCCS was hosted by the University of Central Florida in Orlando.

The ASU's Wolfpac ended the tournament for the men's division as runner-up, losing to a team from the University of Nebraska with a score of 27-14.

Vixen, the ASU female team, was also runner up after losing to Florida A&M, 27-0 in the championship game.

"After hearing about them winning, it definitely motivates me to participate more in intramurals," Murray said.
