Siegfried Hall has an illustrious history of interhall sports championships. There are 31 residence halls on campus so many intramural sports are played on the interhall level. Halls enter one or more teams in 16 different sports, earning points for participation and competing to finish in the top four in each sport. The grand prize of interhall sports is the coveted O'Leary All Sports Trophy, which has been in existence since 1997. Since then, Siegfried has claimed the trophy in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2013, 2015 and most recently, 2016.
Siegfried also competes in an annual competition with its brother dorm, Knott Hall, for the Flanner Cup. This competition is named after Flanner Hall, where the residents of Siegfried and Knott originated from in 1997. This weeklong battle for pride consists of athletic competitions between the two male Mod Quad dorms. The winner gets to name the greenspace between the dorms. Siegfried earned the right to name the greenspace the Siegfried Slope in 2000-2008, 2011, and 2014-2015.
Ramblers sign up to receive information for as many sports as they like during the first week of classes. Team captains then stay in touch with interested residents before submitting final rosters a month before playing starts. Below you can find the various sports Siegfried participates in, a brief description of the event, and Siegfried's championship successes listed in parentheses.

Throughout the year, Notre Dame hosts other athletic opportunities as well. There are events such as the Biathlon (half mile swim and two mile run in early September), Domer Run (5 and 10K races in late September), the Holy Half Marathon (13.1 mile run in late March), and various 5K races sponsored by dorms throughout campus. There are also co-ed intramural events sponsored by RecSports. More information on these events can be found here. Bengal Bouts are also a yearly highlight on campus. Men from all dorms gather to train and box one another to raise money for the Holy Cross Missions in Bengladash. Siegfried's own, Dan Rodgers, was victorious in his weight class in 2007, 2008, and 2009. Look for more information on this early in the school year. There are also intramural fields located just north of Siegfried. Here students can play anything from football to soccer to ultimate frisbee to sand volleyball. We also participate in inter-section two hand touch football. Sections compete for glory throughout the fall and spring semesters.
