As they said in the film “Dodgeball,” “If you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball!”
March 4 from 1-5 p.m. everyone is invited to participate in the Senior Class Fundraiser Dodgeball tournament at WHS.
Teams must consist of six to eight players, with six team members and up to two alternates. Teams must be co-ed with at least as many female team members as male team members.
All are welcome to form a team, including students, parents and staff. Each team is guaranteed at least three games. A match consists of the best three out of five games. Each game will last five minutes.
In addition to the competitive dodgeball games, there will also be a costume contest at the event. All costumes must be school-appropriate and players must have athletic shoes. Prizes will be given out for the team with the most creative costume as well as the team that wins the tournament.
Registration for the tournament is $80, or about $10 a player, with all proceeds going to the 2018 WHS Senior Class Party. Registration forms can be found either on the Booster Club website at whsbooster.com or picked up in the student services office.
Forms and payment should be returned to the student services office or mailed directly to WHS. Deadline to register is next Friday, Feb. 23.
All in the WHS family are invited to participate to raise money for the senior class party, while having fun.
Senior parent Stacie Kray, who is helping to organize the event, said she wants everyone to get involved.
“You don’t have to be a senior to participate,” Kray said. “Freshmen, sophomores and juniors can all put teams together. Challenge your favorite teachers to ‘dodge, duck, dip, dive and dodge.’ It will be a great time!”
Senior Logan Uttecht said he plans to put a team together soon.
“It’s going to be a fun time,” Uttecht said. “Everyone should get involved, even though my team is going to win it all.”
