Tenth Ephrata Dodgeball Tournament Fall 2013

Dodgeball for Diabetes celebrated the tenth annual Dodgeball Tournament, crowning three champions for the Fall of 2013. The tournament featured forty-one teams comprising of over 272 players all of which came together to to have fun, while raising money for Juvenile Diabetes.

The Tournament, designed to raise money for Juvenile Diabetes, raised over $8,900.

The Champions of each circuit are listed below, but in my mind the real winners are the teams that raised more than the minimum required amount.

For the third straight year, Martin Meylin Middle School, in the Lampeter-Strasburg school district, held their own fundraiser, and donated to our event.

Locally one team raised over $1,000 on their own, and for their efforts, members of "Dodge Ballsagna" received a bundle of dodgeball clothes and memorabilia. Also earning top honors in the Middle School "Duck Dodgesty" raised $864.05, which also qualified them for the grand prize.

Congratulations, and thanks to all that participated, and all that helped.
