There were approximately 250 students in attendance on Tuesday night. The overall scoring rules were: 5 points for a 1st round win, 10 points for a win in the semi-finals, and 20 points for winning the sport championship. The points were then totaled across all sports to determine an overall winner.

Though mostly yellow shirts were seen throughout the Student Recreation Center to begin the night, The School of Business started strong as the only team to advance to the semi-finals in all three sports (Indoor Soccer, Dodgeball, and Volleyball). During the semi-final round, College Olympics became a four-team race between undeclared, SBUS, CEHS, and CSAM which lead to a tense, exciting atmosphere as all four teams still had an opportunity to claim the overall championship title. Students gathered along the sidelines and cheered loudly, especially during dodgeball games and during the championships. The undeclared team ended up winning the Dodgeball bracket, while SBUS won Volleyball, and CSAM won Indoor Soccer. In the end, CSAM emerged as the overall champion with a total of 50 points – SBUS and UND followed closely behind with 45 and 40 points.
