Dodgeball champs are crowned
Dodgeball for Diabetes celebrated the ninth annual Dodgeball Tournament, crowning three champions for the Fall of 2012.
The tournament featured 48 teams comprising of over 314 players all of which came together to to have fun, while raising money for Juvenile Diabetes.
The tournament, designed to raise money for Juvenile Diabetes, collected over $11,600, marking the seventh straight year that over $10,000 was raised.
The championship teams included: Rookie Circuit- Harlem Globe Dodgers; Junior Circuit- Bow Down; and Senior Circuit- Dodge.0.
This year three teams made over an hour trek to participate in the event, traveling from Souderton. And for the second straight year, Martin Meylin Middle School, in the Lampeter-Strasburg School District, held its own fundraiser and donated to the event.
Locally one team raised over $1,000 on their own, and for their efforts, members of "Sweet Redeemers" received a bundle of dodgeball clothes and memorabilia.
In the Rookie Circuit, from a record field of 10 teams, the Harlem Globe Dodgers (7-0, 14-1) came out victorious with a win over Team Awesome (5-2, 9-4) in the finals. Little did they know at the time, the Harlem Globe Dodgers were starting a theme, a theme of undefeated champions.
In the Junior Circuit, Bow Down (6-0, 12-2) turned back The Tweeters (4-2, 9-4), two games to one. The two teams had met in pool play earlier, with Bow Down winning that game as well and securing the number one seed from the East pool.
In the Senior Circuit, Dodge.0 (8-0, 16-1) completed the rare trifecta of undefeated champions, turning back the Wallstreet Dodgers (7-1, 14-4). The finals matchup of two undefeated teams was a rarity in itself, and assured all those in attendance that their would be three undefeated champions crowned, regardless of the winner.
The Fluffy Bunnies (5-3, 11-7) had an incredible playoff run, knocking off both Fear the Beard (3-1, 7-2) and Threat Level Midnight (4-2, 8-5) before losing to the eventual champions.
