The ConVal gym was packed to the gills with fans on Friday afternoon, screaming and cheering on their favorites with a playoff-level intensity. This was no ordinary high school sporting event, though – this was ConVal’s first-ever dodgeball tournament!

Teams of students and staff, some decked out in flamboyant homemade “uniforms,” faced off in a battle for dodgeball supremacy. Where else could you see a team of lumberjacks, resplendent in flannel shirts and charcoal beards, take on a team of guidance counselors and teachers decked out in neon yellow shirts that read “Misguided,” or see a team of pink-clad student warriors trying their best to eliminate the school board?

Freshman Danny Parker of team Eliminators had the crowd oohing and ahhing on one memorable sequence; with the rest of his team knocked out, Parker faced a barrage of dodgeballs, but caught one opponent’s throw in the air, discarded it and caught another. That brought two Eliminators back on the courts; the reunited team quickly polished off the enemy, much to the delight of the raucous crowd.

“I didn’t even know I was alone out there,” Parker said. “At first I was nervous but then I just went for it.”

When the dust settled and the balls stopped flying, the Fighting Tigers and Wang Dang Dodgeball Gang were the only two teams remaining. The two teams will face off in front of the whole school at a time to be determined.
