Turkey Bowl turns to dodgeball as faculty falls to students

Upperclassmen and staff alike were thrown a curveball when the annual Turkey Bowl flag football game was converted to a dodgeball match inside the gym due to heavy rainfall today.

In the student versus faculty game, the juniors overcame the faculty in a one-on-one matchup as Nate Orwig defeated Academic Workshop teacher Whitney Long.

Outnumbering the staff, the junior team was able to defeat the faculty in an intense and exciting match.

Gaining an early lead, the juniors seemed to use their numbers against the faculty by taking out a majority of their players.

But as the match progressed, the faculty came back to dominate the juniors, leaving Ben Bialla standing alone.

With pressure, Bialla managed to overpower a few more members of the staff and ultimately catch a ball, eliminating a staff member and bringing in Nate Orwig.

Orwig and Bialla narrowed down the playing field to a two-on-two battle and soon a one-on-one matchup between Orwig and Whitney Long, the Academic Workshop Teacher. Orwig becoming the victor.

The next Turkey Bowl game will be between the staff and seniors tomorrow at lunch.
