KGHS Dodgeball Tournament sponsored by DECA at KGHS

The Fourth Annual King George High School Dodgeball Tournament rounded out a full week of extra-curricular activities for KGHS. The tournament was planned by the Advanced Sports Entertainment and Recreation Marketing class, taught by Ms. Leigh Lawrynas, as a class project. DECA at KGHS (an Association of Marketing Students) also used the event as their “Learn and Earn” Project, where marketing students learn how to put on an entertainment event which is open to the public. Mr. Martin Wolowicz’s IT Fundamentals class assisted with advertising the event as their class project. Several local businesses sponsored the event: Chandler, the Daily Grind, Domino’s Pizza, Golden Skate World, Rocky Top Embroidery, and Brad Butler. All proceeds raised benefit the DECA at KGHS competition travel funds.

Senior Allyson Gallamore and junior Joey Embrey were the student managers of the event, overseeing everything involved with the tournament. The most challenging part of organizing this event, according to Embrey, was that “Two days before the event we found out that we couldn’t have it at the high school because the gym floor was being re-waxed. So we went to all of the principals at the other county schools to ask if we could use their gym.” Embrey and Gallamore were relieved when Sealston Elementary’s principal agreed to allow DECA at KGHS to host the tournament there.

Eleven teams consisting of eight players each registered to play in the tournament. Each team was guaranteed at least two games, as it was a double elimination tournament, and each game consisted of the best 2 of 3 five-minute matches. The team names were entertaining in their own right: Cotton Candy, Oreo’s Supra Freaks, Illy, Da Hammas, Albino Gorillasessez, Sugar Plum Fairies, The Fresh-men, Balls of Fury, KGB, and MonStars.

The day wouldn’t have been complete without the master of ceremony team of David Campbell, Katie Lawrence, and Preston Kasper, who kept the fans and players abreast of every detail throughout the tournament, as well as entertained by their antics.

After many games played, and all but two teams were eliminated, the Championship round began between the undefeated Supra Freaks and the Da Hammas. It was a hair-raising series of matches, as both sides’ players jumped and dodged every ball coming their way. Round One went to the Supra Freaks, but the Da Hammas came back in Round Two to bring the game into a third “sudden death” match. With less than one minute left, the Supra Freak’s Kelly Pierce single-handedly knocked the last Da Hammas player out, bringing his team to victory.

At the end of the day, one team triumphed, but all had a great time. And the class projects were deemed a success. Congratulations, Supra Freaks! Good job to all of the students who worked so hard on this event!
