ym for all interested students and staff. The event costed $5 to play, and $2 to view. Overall, the tournament lasted for around one and a half hours, with the Blue Team reigning supreme after fierce competition with the Red Team.

Teams were made up by students, with sign-up sheets having been available to all during lunch waves. There were a total of four teams, with three teams made up of students, and the last team being staff members. Simple dodgeball rules were used, with a best-of-three format for each round. A bracket system was used to organize matches which ultimately led to the finals where Blue Team would win the tournament.

Notably, the staff team underperformed expectations from the bleachers despite the inclusion of a Fitch track coach, Officer Bousquet, and five other adults on the fourth team. Ms. Hodge got in on the fun as well, as another member on the staff team.

Events like these continue the Junior Class’s fundraising efforts for Junior and Senior Prom.
