As an end-of-the year fundraiser, WRMS hosted its 2nd annual Dodgeball Tournament on Friday, May 17th. Players formed teams of 8, and had to pay $5 to participate which equals $40 total per team formed. The tournament was held in Gym A and supervised by volunteers.

Numerous participants signed up because they believed they would win the tournament. 8th grader, Jack Lauer, on team “Skiybiti Slicers,” said, “I decided to do it because we aren’t boring and we are going to win.” Another 8th grade player, Drake Yeager, was confident that his team was going to win. “I feel like my team will win this year,” said Yeager. His team, “Party Ponies,” won big last year, winning the 7th grade prize. 7th grader Dustin Havercamp on team “Big Boys” also hopes for a win. “I’m looking forward to beating everyone,” Havercamp said. 

For the first time in WRMS dodgeball history, there is an all girls team that formed to play. 8th grader Anna Fowler and her friends were just going to watch the tournament, but instead created the team “Dodging Divas.” “This girl thought we were playing, so we decided to just play since she thought we were,” Fowler said. She believes that team “The Bug Thugs” are her biggest rival. 

Gifted teacher, Mrs. Dowell, put in a lot of hard work to host it. “I love seeing the competitive nature of our students and I love seeing everyone (adults and students) having fun together,” Dowell said. The profits from the tournament will be used to support the students going to the National History Day competition in College Park, Maryland.
