It was an epic ‘game of throws’ recently in the Paul V. Moore High School gymnasium as the school hosted the fifth annual Brewerton PTO Dodgeball Tournament.
The event was open to all youth grades four through twelve, and teams swarmed from all over Oswego and Onondaga counties to compete.
The tournament was broken into two divisions, grades four through six and grades seven through eight.
The winners of the younger division was a team from Jamesville-DeWitt called the “Red Rams.” Central Square team, “Chill Bills” clinched the win for the older youth division.
All proceeds from the event benefit the Brewerton PTO and around $600 was raised overall. In addition to bragging rights, winners from each division were also awarded T-shirt prizes, made locally by Brewerton Specialty Tees.
The tournament’s organizer, James Sandford, has been hosting the event since it began in 2001 and said, “The tournament truly is a lot of fun and is a terrific way for the elementary aged kids to get into the gym.”
He commended the public for such a high turnout, “The community really supports the tournament and I, along with the PTO, am very appreciative of that support.”
This was the fifth annual event and approximately $600 was raised to benefit the Brewerton PTO.
