There was plenty of fast footwork going on last Friday night in the Bank of Colorado Event Center when the Associated Student Government and res life at Northeastern Junior College hosted a dodge ball tournament on campus. Seven teams of 10 were on hand to compete for the championship. Games started at 6 p.m. and ran well past 9 p.m. In addition to 70 players, there were a whole slew of spectators watching the action. Balls were hurled back and forth across the auxiliary gym as if the players’ lives depended on it. And in some instances, the hits almost seemed life threatening. However, soft rubber balls and big smiles meant no one got hurt during the fun. The winning team, which consisted of a mix of honors students, ag students and local students, only walked away with bragging rights for the night, but they were pleased to be the last team standing.
