Dodgeball Day 2
 
     Despite battling a hostile crowd, who always favors an underdog, as well scrapping with a gritty, determined Sandlot club in two different rounds, the pre-tournament favorite That's What She Said at 2 to 1 odds completed their mission as they swept the 2009 Championship Round to stake their claim as one of the all-time H. Frank Carey Dodgeball greats. 
     On their way to the top they only lost two games in five matches.  Working as a team they got solid contributions from all seven players as each played a vital role in their success.  Phil Leidner made several great grabs, Kevin Scott, often playing on the front line made key catches and hits, Sal Cerami playing with his typical fiery emotion kept the team pumped up, Tommy Torregrossa, when he wasn't laying on his back getting guys out kept opponents off-balance with several phantom throws that derailed hard charging attacks, Brian McGrath guarded the pin like he was Henrik Lundqvist and also delivered a great role in the final rounds with key hits, Joe Gregorio, the quiet one, completed a triple hit in game two that stunned the Sandlot and bumped the lead to an insurmountable 2-0 finals lead, and last but not least Luke Zahradka, who tied a Carey record by winning his second Dodgeball title put the final nail in the coffin when he pegged the pin while down 5 to 1 in game three to to retrieve his teammates who quickly put the rest of the Sandlot down for the count.  It was just enough to earn Zahradka the Most Valuable Player award as he now joins older brother C.J.(2005) as a Seahawk Bobblehead recipient.
     The early Day 2 action played out as expected as That's What She Said ended Peter Pan and the Lost Boys cinderella ride in game one.  The Sandlot got their confidence up next when they disposed of the Scrub Nation.  Gym Class Heroes, despite their clever T-Shirts, were unmercifully brought back down to earth by Legends Never Die in a two game wipeout.  Reverend Matthew and the White Panthers battled back from one game down to eliminate a solid Honk If You Demand Satisfaction club who finally had to have their fan contingent put away those annoying, quail sounding, to many hours after New Years Eve kazoos that were worse than nails on a chalkboard to listen to.  The DJ crew Ace Of Spades were defeated by Got 'Em next in a snoozer, sorry fellas but it was before Sun's Out Guns Out knocked off the yellow Picasso's known as Ceral Killers to finish round two.      
     In the quarterfinals, That's What She Said took care of The Sandlot for the first time in three to advance and send Sandlot to the first ever double elimination game where they met Reverend Matthew who were edged out by Legends Never Die.  Got 'Em made one game exciting before Sun's Out did the trick in three. 
     The Sandlot though evenly matched, outshined Reverend Matthew and the White Panthers to advance to the final four against Sun's Out Guns Out who despite being well rested were soundly beaten by The Sandlot as their skills were turned up a notch in a surprising upset.  As the Sandlot waited two heavyweights That's What She Said and Legends Never Die banged heads with the winner headed to the finals.  Action throughout kept the crowd entertained, She Said took game one while Legends after a remarkable game ending catch by big Joe Fasano sealed game two to set up the winner take all rubber match which came rather easily for the jacked up She Saiders who advanced to the finals with the win.
     Giving the fellas a break in the action, the Carey ladies finally got their turn as Chicks With Dodgeballs met up with Aftershock in the girls finals.  Led by Most Valuable Player Marcella Castellano, Aftershock took their first title in straight sets to set off a high pitched frenzy both on the court and in the stands.  It was a fun match that showed what Carey girls were made of.  It took a lot of courage for both teams to take to the court in front of nearly 900 people and they should feel great about themselves, win or lose, for their efforts.
     Returning to the boys tournament That's What She said took care of business and it also gave Mr. Hedquist, that's me, an opportunity to finalize my predictions in style as I am now heading to Las Vegas after completing my predictions at 20-5 :)
     On a serious note though I can not thank the Carey Student Body enough for their remarkable sportsmanship and behavior these last two days.  It was very satisfying to run a tournament with such a positive response.  Hopefully, with your continued help and support we can make next year's tournament an even greater success.  Have a great Summer everyone, and again best of luck to all the Seniors.  Its been fun.
     Mr. Hedquist

Dodgeball Day 1
 
     Before detailing the events of Day 1,  I would like to personally thank the entire Carey HS student body who attended and participated for their outstanding behavior and conduct.  Let's try to make Day 2 run just as smoothly!
     As for the action, when you are the Champs you always carry that bullseye on your back.  Such was the case for the 2008 Champion Tune Squad who were unceremoniously dumped in two straight games by the upstart Peter Pan and the Lost Boys led by Peter Falcon just two games into the tournament.  Plain and Simple, Tune Squad was dominated by a better team but with a cast of underclassmen they will return on a mission in 2010.
     Despite their upset the biggest game of the day preceded them when That's What She Said, and Tune Squad Defector Luke Zahradka outfoxed and outplayed a very game Team White Spot crew who caught the short end of a very challenging first round matchup.  They too, with Captain Kyle DeMeo and his bright teeth should also make noise in 2010.
     Game three pitted the Scrub Nation and its cast of Sophomores vs Lima Y Su Violento who were a huge hit with the fan base but realistically no match as they were knocked off in two.  No worries Lima we are all looking forward to your next costume venture in the future.
     The Sandlot and their number one ranked uniforms took it to The Unknown in another sweep as Russell Linder displayed dazzling moves in both games to get the shutout.
     Moving on to the next bracket Gym Class Heroes Days 2/4 and their unbelievably handsome looking T-Shirt portraits took out The Apostles, despite a valiant effort by St. Thomas Lannon, in a sweep as well.
     Legends Never Die, another high ranked favorite with retro shirts took care of the City Boys and their graffitti shirts in their match rather quickly.
     Pac-Men and Honk If You Demand Satisfaction provided some enlightening entertainment in the next game before Honk advanced with yet another shutout.  How's your mug feeling Espo?
     Reverend Matthew and the White Panthers cured the Super Tough Dudes in a rout as the Dudes were happy just to be part of the festivities.
     Moving to the West Bracket, Got 'Em dropped the Tune Squad contingent as the Monstars will now also head over to the tennis courts to finish their 2009 tournament.
     Ace of Spades and their number one ranked song, Three Cheers for Lemme Kilmeister Metal Heads!! disposed of the Hanh in straight sets but as far as fan support it was all about Hanh!'s Iv Malka who stole the show but was unable to knock down the Aces.
     Sun's Out Guns Out who all need to get directions to the weightroom hammer-dropped The Goonies as the movie night bashing continued.
     To wrap things up the Cereal Killers and their extremely creative and artistic uniforms knocked off Haterade, also known as the Average Brothers to complete the Day 1 contests.  On Friday we will crown a Boys Champion and possibly a Girls Champion as the 8th Annual completes it second half.
     Just a reminder please, as per Carey HS Administration, no face paint, hats in the gym, or uniform distractions during the day.  Please continue doing the right thing like you have and the tournament will continue to thrive. Thank You.
Mr. Hedquist

Dodgeball 2009
 
     Welcome to the H.Frank Carey Dodgeball Site!  I want to thank all of the participants beforehand for making the 2008-2009 school year another enjoyable ride and I wish all of the Seniors the best of the luck in the future.
     This year's Dodgeball Tournament held on June 11th and June 12th, as always, is also a special fundraiser for the Carey Baseball Program and after our best season in years we also want to say thank you for supporting us.
     Now let's get down to business.  This year's tournament, more so than any other year was almost a no-go, but thankfully our Principal Mrs. Angelillo gave the go ahead with a few stipulations.  Under no circumstances can the following things happen:  1) No Inappropriate Team Names-If you are not sure then ask Mr. Farina or myself.  2) Do NOT wear your Dodgeball Gameday Uniform during the school day--All Headbands, Hats, Bandanas, Etc. will be confiscated and you will become a distraction to the educational process.  Worse off you will put this tournament in jeopardy of becoming extinct!  3) When you attend the two-day Tournament-Do NOT hang around or walk through the hallways-No getting books, or "I forgot something in my locker" nonsense.  When the entire crowd leaves after the tournament you should exit the building and head home.  4) No foul language or inappropriate behavior will be tolerated on the court or in the stands.  5)  Make sure you are attending all of your Review classes and extra study periods-budget your time properly.  If there is a conflict with the tournament make arrangements so you go to the review courses in the morning.
6) Use common sense-you represent Carey HS and yourself.  Behave, compete have fun but do the right thing (You all know what that is) and this tournament will continue in the future.  If not then we may go by way of the dinosaur-Please don't ruin a good thing.
     Listed below are the Odds to Win, as well as the Tournament Brackets for this year's 8th Annual.  I will preface it the same way I do every year.  I do NOT care who wins.  I write the Odds based on my observations of you as an athlete, or lack thereof :), from what I see in Gym Class.  I then apply a GUESS as to what I think your team will do.  I also take into account what bracket your team is in.  After all of that I post what I think are your chances of winning.  As you can see however, it is plain to see that our top bracket Teams 1-8 is LOADED.  I do believe a Champ will emerge from that group.  However, if Super Tough Dudes won it all then I would be thrilled.  Have fun with the Odds and be sure to stay tuned to see if any Odds change before Thursday.  I will post my Game to Game Predictions sometime this week after I am assured that all teams are paid in full, that all progress reports are submitted and that every team roster is finalized.
Thnaks again,
Mr. Hedquist
