Lane, junior in health administration, recruited friends she played basketball with at Grissom High School in Hunstville to join the team.
The Oranges, a member of the women’s independent intramural basketball league, earned the title of 2009 women’s intramural champions and then went on to beat the sorority league champions.
“I started the team when I was a freshman and now people ask to be on the team and it gets kind of hard because you can’t have too many people because of playing time,” Lane said.
The Yellows, who remain undefeated, beat ACF 5 4211 with 6:50 left in the second half when the 30-point-lead mercy rule was enforced.
“Most of the teams we’ve played were Christian Centers so they’re all nice about it,” Lane said.
Their success has not gone unnoticed by friends and basketball enthusiasts.
The Yellows had the biggest fan section of all of the women’s intramural teams playing Monday.
Adam Fox, junior in physics, said he comes to all of The Yellow’s games to support his girlfriend, Lane.
Lane’s friends usually recruit a big crowd to come.
“I came to support my friend Anna who played basketball in high school,” said Britney Kelley, senior in psychology. “When she came to college she played intramurals and has always wanted me to come.”
Although The Yellow’s games are often cut short because of the mercy rule, Gabby Meredith, junior in public relations, said she enjoys watching the fierce female competition.
“It’s a really fun time and we all played in high school and it’s really cool to see how we play together now in college; it’s a good atmosphere,” Lane said.
