Dodgeball tournament continues

By Caitlin Chung ’20

The 2017 dodgeball tournament started on March 1 with the British Broadcasting Corporation competing against Ballsamic Winegar. Currently, eight teams are still in the running for the championship trophy. These teams made it to the third round and will continue to compete in the tournament in a single elimination style.

Students participating in the dodgeball tournament expressed their enthusiasm for the games.

“This is my first year at Harvard-Westlake, and I think the dodgeball tournament is great. I’ve only played one game because there has been quite a delay, but it has been a lot of fun.” Alan Blackwell ’21 said.

Peers watching on the sidelines also said that they were enjoying the annual Middle School tradition.

“I’ve been to many games this year, and I’ve enjoyed it very much. Especially because I’m a ninth grader this year, I’m always excited to see a lot of my friends on the court and what will happen in the matches” Daisy Wan ’20 said.

Math Department Head Bob Pavich, who has been a referee for the tournament since its inception of the tournament 11 years ago, said he is very happy with how the tournament has been turning out so far.

“I think dodgeball is going pretty well. Now all the matches are single matches on the Lower Court, so more people can attend the games. It will get a little bit more animated, and the games will be of higher quality. It is just like March Madness, for as we move towards the final games the matches get better and better each time,” Pavich said.

The third round will continue until April 28, and the four teams that win will continue to advance to determine who will compete in the championship games.
