Dodgeball: First Round Recap

The school’s annual dodgeball tournament kicked off with a bang this week, with 64 teams competing in the single elimination tournament. The 32 games played during lunch in the large gym from Monday, May 13, to Thursday, May 16, were all first round games. The 4 days of competition eliminated 32 teams from the dodgeball berth and yielded a number of incredibly impressive performances from students from every class. Teams of six each played five minutes of furious dodgeball, with scores based on the number of wins each team had in the period. To win a game, a team had to eliminate every team member on the opposing team. The games for the second round began yesterday, May 17.

“Dodgeball, in my opinion, is really a great way to end the year,” sophomore Sami Fakalolo said. “It gives everyone a chance to have fun and create a closer bond. Overall, it’s a very exciting event at Los Altos.”
