8th Grade Survivor Ball Tournament
December 23, 2018
After two years of experience, the 8th graders looked sharp out on the court. They could zip the ball, duck down, dodge and spin to try and win the game. In the end, only four teams would make it to the championship, two for the boys, and two for the girls.
In the girls championship, the Benchwarmers 2.0 and the Skater Bois faced off. This game started off kind of slow, but then got right into the action. Slowly, the Skater Bois’ numbers decreased. Then there was only one Skater Boi left. She tried to win it for her team, but could not succeed.
After the game, the last Skater Boi left said “I was insane, I was scared. I was like ‘oh if I lose I am gonna lose for my team.’ But I was just kept pushing through, I didn’t let that distract me. I just kept going, and forgot about that, and I just wanted to win.”
One of the Benchwarmers, Savana B., said this after the game. “We came out here to have fun, we didn’t know that we would win, so it just felt good.” She also said “we were so excited. We were just jumping all over, and we just felt amazing.”
The Lil’ Daddies and the Kool Aid Jammers played against one another in the boys championship. This game started off quick, in which everyone except one person was eliminated from the Kool Aid Jammers in one minute and twenty-five seconds. With only one Kool Aid Jammer left, Lorenzo A., there seemed to be no hope. He and the other team stood around for a bit, but eventually Kevin R. caught a ball thrown by Lorenzo to secure the win for the Lil’ Daddies.
With the last Survivor Ball Tournament for these 8th graders, they can now reminisce on their three years of memories.
