The classic recreational game of dodgeball has swept campus by storm.

As this year’s dodgeball tournament kicks off, students can be found playing or spectating dodgeball games on the field everyday at lunch for the next few weeks.

The teams are composed of students who have selected up to six members to play at a time. The games commenced Nov. 21, and have been a popular lunchtime activity since.

Associated Student Body senior Claire Noemer described the games as “kind of like Carlmont Cup because the winners compete against each other until the final round where someone wins it all.”

The bar has been raised high for this year’s dodgeball competition due to the success of Carlmont Cup. The competition in this year’s Carlmont Cup was more fierce than ever and became an instant phenomenon due to the amount of spectators and clubs that participated.

Though dodgeball may only be a recreational activity, some students are very competitive and take the competition very seriously.

“Of course my team is going to win,” said senior Evan McClain who is on the senior team Seniors Turn Down. “I’m really good at dodgeball and I was invited to play. Tristan (Gasperian), Matt Seubert, and some other people are on the team so we’re definitely going to win,” said McClain.

Some teams weren’t formulated based of friendship or grade level.

“Ethan Wallace gave us a sign up sheet in choir and told us we had to do it and we were already playing dodgeball one day with a beach ball in class so we just thought ‘why not?’…I think dodgeball is so popular this year because there’s a lot of good teams signed up and Ethan (Wallace) is the emcee so it’s about to be pretty fun,” said senior Kurt Hildebrandt.

This year’s competition heats up even further as students prepare themselves for battle. May the best team win.
