The New Global Citizens (NGC) club organized a dodgeball tournament on March 24 to raise money for Schools on Wheels. “The funds will go towards purchasing school supplies for underprivileged kids,” Student Activities Director Lisa Hall said.

While the dodgeball tournament is still a relatively new occurrence, there was a lot of excitement over the annual tournament. “It started two years ago,” NGC co-president senior Laura Johnson said. “People got really into it, and they created team shirts. Team Hostile, a team that has won both years, creates a big rivalry because everyone wants to beat them.”

This year, however, Team Hostile failed to win the tournament, losing to the freshman team Shvitz and the baseball team. “The tournament was really fun,” freshman Michael Kram of team Shvitz said. “Though we didn’t win the tournament, we did beat Team Hostile and that felt really good because they won the tournament in the last two years.”
