Argyle dodgeball tourney boasts big turnout

Balls flying. Heads ducking. An action-packed Saturday night was had by students in grades 3–12 at the annual dodgeball tournament sponsored by the Liberty Christian baseball team.

The tournament, held on Jan. 16, provided an exciting opportunity to grow friendships and create lasting bonds that will continue both inside and outside of the classroom.

Each dodgeball team was led by several Upper School baseball players who spent the night volunteering at the event. Participants were grouped into two divisions based on their grade in school. The double-elimination tournament determined a winning team from both Lower and Middle schools.

“This year’s dodgeball tournament was better than ever,” said baseball coach Billy Jordan. “This was the biggest turnout we have ever had at 178 students, and our players did an awesome job leading the kids and having fun with them.”

The exhilarating evening lasted until midnight, but the adrenaline-filled friendly competition left little room for drowsy players.

“It was great to see the kids having fun and being competitive all at the same time,” Jordan said.

Between dodgeball games, students got to hang out in Commons Place, which was set up with gaming systems and three huge TV screens.

In addition to creating a fun-filled and thrilling night, the tournament served as a fundraiser for the baseball team to travel to Arizona in late March for the “Coach Bob Classic,” where Liberty’s team will be the only school from Texas. The baseball team will play eight games against teams from other states.

Additionally, players will also get to go see the Texas Rangers at their spring training in Surprise, Arizona.
