If the second annual dodgeball tournament could be summed in one word, it would have to be this: Duck!

A whopping 48 teams came out in creative costumes to compete in the daylong tournament at Skyline High School on Saturday, Jan. 21. Whether they were wearing disco pants, crowns, neckties or speedos, all players paid $10 to support the school’s rowing teams.

This year’s fundraiser raised around $4,000. Rowing coach Kit Bennett said Saturday’s tournament attracted more teams than last year, and the high school division alone doubled.

Anyone from third grade to over age thirty could participate in the competition, making a day full of fun, fundraising, and (hopefully) fast reflexes.
