The True Blue dodgeball tournament, where everything is on the line. A tournament that consists of student against student and student against teacher showdowns. If you are good enough to  make it through the student bracket and win, you are with a whole new mountain to climb, the teachers. The best faculty in the building challenge the best students.

A fundraiser put on by the yearbook was as success by many students and teachers. The yearbook gained money for promotion while participants got their money’s worth playing the great game of dodgeball. It was a win-win.

Yet, what students were worthy of competing against the faculty? Who won the tournament and got the chance to compete at a pep assembly in front of the school?

The cross-country state champions. The competition couldn’t have been better for the teachers. A team led by Avery Stuever, a senior. A team stacked with not just runners, but athletes. They left it all on the floor and the games couldn’t have been more interesting.

“The games were extremely intense but I knew we could pull out the win” says sophomore Ryan Derry. These runners are used to coming in clutch with big wins even if all the pressure is on them. So they felt pretty confident with their match against the teachers.

The games were very…interesting. The teachers were outmatched to the XC team and their cannons for arms. While the games were intense and fun to watch, the teachers left the gym with their heads hanging.

“No comment” replies Mr. Tarletsky to the question, how did you feel about the loss to the cross-country dodgeball team. The teachers ego was stripped and the cross-country team had another championship under their belt.

It was well-played on both sides and while someone had to come out on top, everyone had a good time.  

“It was a blowout but I had a really fun time. It is something I would definitely do again” says Mr. Jamison. So even though the faculty still lost, most enjoyed their time on the court.

I’m sure the tournament next year will be just as interesting, as more student will likely compete to try to get a shot at the teachers. Who will be worthy of their competition? And who will try to take them down?
