Del Mar College hosted its first intramural dodgeball of the fall semester on Sept. 25. Students gathered for a time to take their minds off of classes and just have fun.
Dodgeball is a game where people try to eliminate opponents on the opposite side by throwing the ball at them. Some say it is a good sport to play as it form of anaerobic exercise, promoting strength, speed and power to the body, which gives you a lot of energy.
Zach Riley, 21, participated in the dodgeball game to take the edge off of school.
“It’s a stress reliever and it makes me confident whenever I’ve had a bad day,” he said.
For 18-year-old Alejandro Lerma Palacios, he was just at the right place at the right time.
“I just wanted to do something to pass time,” he said.
