Eight teams are participating in the first intramural dodgeball tournament of the year, organized by the Campus Activities Board.
Adan Jaime, a Campus Activities Board member who helped organize the event, says it has become a tradition.
“Since I was a freshman it was always the first event,” Jaime said.
The tournament had more than 100 students attend and about 80 of those played in the tournament.
The games provided fun and excitement for those who played as well as for those who watched the games.
The gym was filled with cheering from those watching the competitive matches.
“There were balls flying, and a lot of energy and concentrating,” Lauren Lahn, a sophomore said. “It was exciting to watch.”
Although intramural tournaments are meant to be friendly games, one of the dodgeball players Tuesday night was fouled during one of the games.
Erin Langdon was hit in the face during the last game of the night.
“It was shocking,” said Langdon. “I got hit in a bad spot.” Langdon continued playing the game after the incident.
After two hours of play, Teams Phi Delts, I-Delts and FastBreak had won their respective matches. While teams P. P. + and Leftovers Revenge tied their set.
The teams could have a maximum of 10 players, with eight players on the floor. The rules required a minimum of one woman playing on each team during a match. There were two teams composed of only female players.
The third round of the tournament will be played at 10 p.m. Tuesday in the gym. The semi-finals and final rounds will be played at 10 p.m. Oct. 1.
