Haverford High School’s 1,724 student body gathered in the Juenger Gymnasium on Friday, December 20 to watch the annual dodgeball tournament. The event occurs yearly during fourth block on the day before winter break. The event was hosted by the FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America) to raise funds for the local charity, Bringing Hope Home. Students who attended were encouraged to donate a minimum of one dollar to skip fourth block. 

Each participant in the game was required to pay five dollars to be a part of their team. These teams were pitted against each other in three-minute rounds, two of which proceeded simultaneously on separate sides of the gym. In addition to creating their team names, most teams designed their uniforms to fit the part, many of them looking quite bold. 

The event was an overall success, raising funds that will be used to benefit local citizens struggling with cancer through a fundraiser for Bringing Hope Home. Of the 20 teams who participated, some of which was comprised of teachers, two rose to the top to become the winners. The runner-up was McGiggles Loves Bacon, and the team that won first place was Seth’s Soldiers.
