Glow-in-the-dark dodgeball lights up Dixon Center

What do you get when you combine black lights and dodgeball?  An insanely awesome glow-in-the-dark dodgeball game is what. The  Glow-in-the-Dark Dodgeball Tournament took place on Wednesday, Feb. 8 in the Dixon Center Gym.  Seven student teams came out to compete in the first event of Glow Week 2012, hosted by the Campus Activities and Programming Board, known as CAP board.

A similar event was held last semester by CAP Board.  It was very popular and involved a lot of student participation.  This semester, CAP Board brought the event back with a black light twist.

“I like the idea of the black-light version of the game,” Lindsey Wainwright, junior accounting major, said.

The seven teams that competed included SEaLish, LOD, Team Bru-shawn, Team Swag, Team Soccer, Team Beast and Team Heat.  The tournament was set up as a round robin. Teams selected to play against each other were separated into brackets.

CAP Board brought in a professional DJ to play music, supply black lighting and glow-in-the-dark dodgeballs for the tournament.

“I liked the DJ,” Wainwright said. “It was a nice addition to the game.”

The lights went out, glow sticks were cracked and the competition began.  One by one, teams were dropping like flies. Then it came down to two teams, Team Soccer and Team Bru-shawn.  In the end Team Soccer took the crown.

“The final throw-down between the two teams and the music put on a nice vibe,” Charlie Platia, sophomore graphic design major, said.
