SAAC Puts on Annual Dodgeball Tournament


By Megan Andre

PORTLAND, Ore. - The annual SAAC Dodgeball Tournament gave a break to approximately 120 competitors, both students and staff, on December 13, 2012. This year’s tourney had 19 teams competing for the title of Dodgeball Champion. The double elimination tourney started at noon with intense games all day long. There were strong competitors from the beginning of the game with some great teams.

The championship game was between Moto, last year’s champions, from the loser’s bracket, and Short Stacks, from the winner’s bracket. The championship round was as good a game to watch as the players showed some fantastic athleticism. Evan Gray came up with the win for the Short Stacks after a caught ball and a throw to knock out the last two Moto members.

Thanks to the SAAC members and student-athletes who helped with setup and running the tourney and to the Athletic Department staff for equipment and tournament help.
