Fourteenth Ephrata Dodgeball Tournament Fall 2017

Dodgeball for Diabetes celebrated the fourteenth annual Dodgeball Tournament, crowning three champions for the Fall of 2017. The tournament featured thirty-four teams comprising of over 226 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 $8,600.

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.

Locally one team raised $967 on their own, and for their efforts, members of "Mellinger Hagen 2020" received a bundle of dodgeball clothes and memorabilia. Also earning top honors in the Junior Circuit "Can't Dodge This" raised $453 and in the Senior Circuit "Big Daddy and the Boys" raised $410.

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