Dodgeball Tournament

As the new year starts, so do new traditions. President of Student Council Kiki Tolles organized the first-ever high school dodgeball tournament.

Kiki organized this event, “to provide a fun and competitive way for the student body to integrate teamwork and strengthen friendships. Playing dodgeball is fun, but playing against your fellow classmates and teachers just ups the competitiveness and excitement.”

The winning team will be provided with either an ice cream party, pizza party, or a lunch of their choice. Tolles says student council chose the teacher captains “based on which teachers were thought to be most competitive.”

Q: How did you decide who was on your team?

A: The stress! Will the poor children feel pressed to be asked by their English teacher who is afraid balls? I walked over like a homing pigeon towards the ninth/tenth grade quad. I saw a group of tenth grade boys, and was, like, hey, do y’all want to be on my team? They said yes, and one thing led to another.

Q: Is there a specific team you want to beat?

A: Faust’s. He’s ferocious and needs to be put in his place.

 

 

Q: How do you feel about being a team captain?

A: I am happy to be a team captain. However, I am not in the least bit competitive. In fact, when it comes to playing games I often lose on purpose. When I can tell that someone else is taking it too seriously, I step back in order to prevent drama.

Q: Is there a specific team you want to beat?

A: There is no particular I wish to beat. I hope they will be willing to try and have a sense of fun.

 

Q: What qualities do you want your team to posses?

A: Honesty. If we get hit, we are out. Core strength to bend our bodies like in “the Matrix” to avoid the round missiles hurled at as. We will also assess the ancient text “The Art of War” by Sun Tzu in order to know ourselves and our enemy.

Q: How did you decide who was on your team?

A: I’m not very comfortable choosing a team because I don’t want to play favorites. I will have a clipboard outside my room

 

Q: How did you decide who was on your team?

A: I went to the freshman quad and I also thought about who I’d seen play in the middle school advisory games. While I was recruiting, I knew as long as I got Scott Self I’d be set for success.

Q: Is there a specific team you want to beat?

A: I want to beat Mrs. Pardue’s team because she recruited all the senior boys and they need to go down.

 

Q: What qualities do your team posses?

A: I want athletic students that will able to win. I also want students that I have a good relationship with. The most important qualities are determination, positive attitudes and the willingness to work hard and do whatever it takes to win.

Q: Is there a specific team you want to beat?

A: I really want to beat Mr. Faust.

 

 

Q: How do you feel about being a team captain?

A: I feel honored to be a team captain. But I honestly think that the team captain will be a rotating position offered at the end of each match. Those who push themselves to be great will be awarded as a true team captain. I am simply a humble servant of my team – no less.

Q: How did you decide who was on your team?

A: I took all the corners. There was no decision other than the desire to put as many on my team as possible.

 

Q: How did you decide who was on your team?

A: Well, I had my first team seduced away from me. Luckily, I have formed an underdog team. JZ is the captain and recruiter. I will coach them to victory from the bench!

Q: What qualities do you want your team to possess?

A: I expect that my team will be spirited and competitive!

 

 

Q: What was your recruiting process?

A: By the time the announcement was made in assembly, all of my potential teammates were taken! I am afraid I wasn’t proactive enough ahead of time.

Q: Are you going to still participate in the dodgeball tournament?

A: All those I had asked were already on a team. It will have to be without me/my team.
