On Friday, November 18, Stamford High School’s Class of 2019 and Class of 2020 held their third Annual Dodgeball Tournament in the Kuzco Gym at 7 p.m. Twelve teams faced fierce competition; among them were the Dirty Dodgers, led by SHS students, who emerged as the champions.  The Dirty Dodgers and Coach Coach Coach, composed of physical education teachers, faced off in the final game.  Junior Class Vice President Samantha Heller said, “The Dodgeball Tournament was an awesome night and a great fundraiser! Thanks to all those who participated.”

SHS students excelled and unexpectedly beat the two-year champions, Coach Coach Coach, and a new team this year made up of Stamford Firefighters. Dana Serricchio, a junior who played on Too Steezy, a team who came in third and beat the firefighters, said, “I had a lot of fun.  My team won a lot”.  

The tournament was played with three two-minute periods and a double elimination format, meaning you had to lose two games to be eliminated.  However, if a team lost one game, they were moved down to the losers’ bracket.  The teams also switched sides of the court after each period to ensure that no team had an advantage.  

Tiffany Clark, event co-organizer and sophomore class advisor, said “The dodgeball tournament was a huge success. We had a large crowd of parents, students and community members supporting and many staff members who came to help out. It was a fun event for all and a new champion was crowned. We are already looking forward to next year’s tournament.”
