5th Annual Helena Dodgeball Tournament Draws Huge Crowd

Posted: Updated:

In the immortal words of Patches O'Houlihan, there are five D's to dodgeball: dodge, duck, dip, dive, and dodge. That's exactly what kids and adults were doing today at Capital gym for the fifth annual Helena dodgeball tournament. With three different levels to compete at: student, co-ed, and uber competitive, spirits were running high.

"Yeah, we're the best," said members of the Delicious and Vicious team. "Full athleticism. Speed, agility, quickness, greatness, sexiness, I mean it all comes down. One package. And it's got to be the haircut, feathered and lethal."

Haircuts aside, three champions were named today such as team Woof for the students division. Championships not won by looks or appeal, but by skill, dodging, and maybe a bit of a mean streak.

"What's your favorite part of dodgeball?"

"Hitting the kids hard," said members of the Woof team.

"Why does everyone love hitting kids hard? This seems mean!"

"It's just fun. It's all about winning! Winning! Victory," joked more members of the Woof team.

Well the players certainly are enthused about the tournament but let's not forget, this has been put on the by Narrate church as a part of a way to get the Helena community more involved and just together in general.

"We feel like the church should exist for the benefit of the non-member," said pastor Adam Huschka of Narrate church. "So we're trying to do things that I don't know just matter in the community. So a couple years ago, or five years ago the idea was 'Lets' create a dodgeball tournament in the midst of cabin fever and just get adults together and allow them to throw dodgeballs at each other.'"

Definitely a different idea for the church, but it seems to have stuck in the Helena community.
