The Community Scholars hosted Dodge Out Hunger, a dodgeball tournament to collect canned goods for the Del City Regional Food Bank, on Oct. 30.

The entry fee for teams to participate was 25 cans of food. Games were played 6-on-6, and best 2-of-3 five-minute rounds.

The Scholars wanted to help solve the “growing problem of hunger,” Community Scholar Hunter Brodrick said.

Six teams participated in the tournament, including Hoops Club, Sword Art Online, Humanities Heroes, The 5D’s, Spice Girls and The Refs.

The winner was Hoops Club, formerly known as Colors, that also won intramural flag football and volleyball. Second place went to the Spice Girls, and the best costume award was given to The Refs.

David Alexander of the Hoops Club said the club participated in the tournament to “be more active in organized activities” and to get more students involved with the club.

Student Ambassador Keith Snyder, twin brother of Community Scholar Kyle Snyder, said the tournament was “a good way to collect food” and a “fun way to get students active.”

“We wanted to give something back to the community,” Kyle Snyder said.

Brodrick said it’s “fun to help out.”

The tournament was hosted by first-year Community Scholars as a service project for their Lessons in Leadership class.
