City 6 Extramural Classic to Take Place at Palestra

2009 Extramural Classic Bracket (PDF)

PHILADELPHIA - It was a busy basketball season at The Palestra, what with the Penn men’s and women’s team being joined this year by the Saint Joseph’s men (and, occasionally, the SJU women). Even though all four teams are done, that does not mean the building will sit dormant until next year.

Instead, The Palestra will host this year’s City 6 Extramural Classic Men’s, Women’s & Co-Rec Championships this Saturday, March 28beginning at 1p.m.

The City 6 Extramural Classic features the men’s, women’s, and co-ed intramural champions from the six Division I institutions in the city (Drexel, La Salle, Penn, Saint Joseph’s, Temple, Villanova) as they square off to determine the best intramural team in the city.

The tournament will start with quarterfinal and semifinal play at Penn’s David Pottruck Health and Fitness Center from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and lead up to the respective championship games that afternoon at The Palestra. The co-rec final will take place at 1 p.m., the women’s final will go at 3:30 p.m., and the men’s final will conclude the day with a 5 p.m. tipoff.

The event is open to the public at both venues, and admission is free for all games.
