S.A.G.E. to host dodgeball tournament for WT students

Students Assisting in Good Endeavor (S.A.G.E.), a WTAMU campus organization, is hosting its eigth annual dodgeball tournament on March 1.

The games will begin at 7 p.m. in The Box and everyone is welcome to attend, said S.A.G.E. president Jordan Welch, a Childhood Education major.

“Any WT student can participate,” said Welch.  “[The first] 180 people [to arrive] will receive a t-shirt.”All-male or all-female teams of six can join the tournament.  Each player will pay a $5 entry fee, said Welch.

Eric Vadaurri, a S.A.G.E. member majoring in Marketing, said this a major event of the year.

“This is definitely one of our biggest events,” Vadaurri said.  “We have asked all of our members to go out and collect donations and get as many teams as they can.”

S.A.G.E. member Jayton Welch, a Biology major, said there has been plenty of preparation for the evening event.

“We’ve been trying to get a hold of people that might have dodgeballs they could lend us for the evening,” Welch said.  “We had to get a DJ and bracket ready [and] we’ve been trying to get teams pre-registered.”

Total proceeds of the tournament will directly benefit someone next semester, said S.A.G.E. member Jacob Schacher, a Sports and Exercise Science major.

“The money we raise goes towards a scholarship that is awarded to an incoming freshman,” Schacher said.

For teams wishing to compete, late registration will take place at 6:30 p.m. on the day of the tournament in The Box.
