Del Mar Intramurals hosted their Fall 2012 Dodge Ball tournament Nov. 27 at the racquetball courts in the Kinesiology building. The tournament ended up as an all male versus an all female team.
Temporary Intramural Instructor Prince Macon and staff members Rilwan Sanusi and Dora-Marie Pilcher coordinated the tournament that had a successful turnout.
The men’s team, Flying Flamingos, who were all DMC students faced off against the women’s Collegiate High School team, Balls of Fury.
“That was a good loss girls, good loss,” said Kinesiology major Dave Patrick to the opposing team after Balls of Fury were defeated in one of the tournament rounds.
Balls of Fury consisted of Del Mar Collegiate High School students Tina Tyler, Tori Ahumada, Maili Allende, Bella Ramos, Domanika Watson and Shannel Hogan.
Flying Flamingos included Culinary major Dwight Rives, Kinesiology major Dave Patrick, Nursing major Woody Solomon, Music major Javier Arredondo and Occupational Therapy major David Villarreal.
After 11 rounds of vigorous yet fun dodgeball action, Balls of Fury came out victorious. The tournament was game for game as neither team showed signs of diminished spirit, but most of all, both teams said they enjoyed the tournament.
“The best part of the tournament, other than winning, had to be us beating the boys. That was the funniest part,” said Watson from Balls of Fury.
The winning team received a Del Mar College gym sack with other accessories inside and an Intramural Sports Shirt from Director Macon.
“I’m really involved in specific intramural sports just for fun and to stay athletic,” said Tyler.
DMC Intramurals wants students to get more involved.
