Day 2 Recap
     In one of the most exciting tournaments ever Jack Young's well balanced Now You're All In Big, Big Trouble club had what it took as they defeated a very good Jungle Cats in the Bathroom team three games to one to stake their claim in H. Frank Carey High School immortality as they seized the 2010 Dodgeball Throne.
    Not to be outdone the Girls Champions cleverly named The Homewreckers also took home a piece of glory as they won two games to none in their championship round.
    As for the second round of games, the favorites, Kickin' It Old School and Bernard Campbell and the Speaker City Boys, picked up from where they left off in the first couple of games before all heck broke loose when Billy Mays' Heroes stunned John Wall's Finest to send the Carey gym into bedlam.  The pace became so quick for the Finest that they tried to slow the game down to a crawl's pace only to see an Orange Line call for only the second time in tournament history.  When it was done a tournament favorite was left title-less.  Game four saw a huge matchup between Now You're All In Big, Big Trouble and Oh Was That Yo' Girl surprisingly go two straight as an injured and Tiger Balm smelling 'Girl' squad never found their rhythm.     
    Moving to the North bracket David Cedeno and Harry Smith gave the fans their first taste of a one on one showdown before Smith's Cats prevailed in three games.  Next the flag waving Paisans took out the Scrapyard Junkies, who got a great effort from Blake Boerckel before getting swept.
    Moving to the quarterfinals, some early unsportsmanlike conducts broke the feel good rapport of the first couple of rounds as the intensity to win increased.  The Craig vs Greg showdown from Kickin' It Old School and Bernard Campbell and the Speaker City Boys highlighted the opening game of the Elite eight before the B.C's disposed of Old School in two.  Kickin' then got sent to the South bracket.  The next matchup saw the cinderella Billy Mays finally drop one as they lost to the hard charging Trouble team as all seven members of 'Trouble' contributed to the win.  Mays' also moved to the South losers bracket.
    Before that however, the Jungle Cats would first pull off the greatest upset of the tournament as they deported Giulian and his Six Paisans in three games as the pre-seeded number ones were sent packing despite getting some great play from Vin Cali and Kyle Demeo.  But the real highlight came in the third and deciding game when Nick Safuto dove to save a teammate and eliminate DeMeo on the same play.  It was the turning point for the Cats and ending point for the Paisans.  Kudos to Eddie Eymold for some ridiculous athleticism as well.
     Using their second chance the 400-1 Billy Mays' got back in the winner's circle as they nipped Kickin' It in the South Final to reach the final four.  On the East-West side Big, Big Trouble lost to the Speaker City Boys in game one as the signature moment came when Jake Robison whiffed on Lax teammate Kyle Petersen from just six feet away before Petersen returned volley with a game winner.  But instead of buckling under the pressure, the Big Trouble boys roared back in game two as Tom Scott, Rob Miotto and Anthony "The Shirt Ripper" Zeppieri each took down Speaker boys to even it at 1-1.  In the pivotal game three, the Senior laden Speaker Boys, still favored at that point, endured one of the worst Dodgeball Blitzkrieg's ever seen as Big, Big trouble sealed their fate with a 10 second five man knockout that had Carey High School's roof blowing its top.  Less than one minute later the dream officially ended for Bernard Campbell and friends despite a heroic effort by Greg D'Arienzo who returned from his Lax injury to give one more athletic performance.
    Having taken the scenic route the exhausted Billy Mays crew finally turned back into a pumpkin as the 'Cats' scratched them out in two to advance to the finals.
    Detouring from the boys run to glory, the girls teams first met for the title as Heather Jones' Seven Deadly Sins squared off vs Kelliann Dupignac's The Homewreckers as every Carey female student looked on proudly.  The 'Sins' appeared to have things under control as they had three players left to just the Homewreckers one.  But the Homewreckers one was Carolina Ochoa who smoothly battled and blocked before nailing the pin for a team release which the Homewreckers used to power their way to the title as they, along with MVP Ochoa, cast aside the 'Sins' in two games to win the Championship.
     Returning to the boys side, the revved up Big Trouble boys would make Billy Madison proud as they overwhelmed the Cats in four games to head to the Dodgeball Wall of Fame.  'Trouble' took games one and two rather easily before the Cats staved off elimination once only to see game four bring their run to an end while Now You're All in Big, Big Trouble headed to the winners circle to pick up their Championship T-Shirts as well as their Gift Certificate to Boulder Creek. 
     So congratulations to Tom Scott, aggressive throughout; Nick Vilchez, floppy hair and all who was a sideline sniper; Rob Miotto, whose athleticism never ceases to amaze; Jake Robison, whose great effort in game one vs Speaker City gave 'Trouble' the confidence they needed; Anthony Zeppieri, who despite his issues with cotton T-Shirts brought some fiery emotion; Drew Zahradka, whose rise to the Dodgeball pinnacle gave the Zahradka Family their third member with a Tournament Championship; and lastly to tournament MVP and team Captain Jack Young, whose quiet leadership was just the right mix for this well deserving team.  Congratulations again to all! 
     A huge thank you to Principal Angelillo, Assistant Principals Flynn, Kenny and Wright for permitting the tournament to take place.  And of course a big thumbs up to the Carey Student body who conducted themselves in  spectacular fashion over the two days of the tournament.  Have a great Summer!

Day 1 Recap
     In the I told you so category Mr. Hedquist accurately predicted a perfect 12-0 as his so named favorites cruised to first day victories.  There were some tense moments for a few teams but at the end of the day only the 10-1 Sandlot had left the buiding to minimal surprise.
    Vicious and Delicious defeated Off Constantly who did put up a good fight but after a great Dan O'Connell diving catch the momentum swung once and for all for Delicious.  Game two was all about the first of several mano y mano battles as Craig Samson bested Paul Collazo in three to help Kickin' It Old School advance over YMCA.  Next Welcome to Sesame Street with their colorful apparel turned aside the Just Average Guys Elevating Ranks.  The final game of the East bracket was the featured attraction as Bernard Campbell and the Speaker City Boys got a huge spark from their only underclassmen, Andrew Gentile to send The Sandlot back to the ball field in two straight.
     Moving to the West bracket One Black Sheep stole a game one victory before the Billy Mays Heroes (Also Our Outstanding DJ Crew) collected themselves and sent the sheep back out to the meadow.  Kentucky's own John Wall's Finest was on tap next and they didn't disappoint as they pummeled the Goon Squad in consecutive shutouts.  After some entertaining pre-show spectacle by Brian Lima of Lima's Landscaping, including some glitter and sparkle tossing, they were quickly sent packing by Now You're All in Big, Big Trouble of Billy Madison fame, concluding that bracket was Oh Was That Yo' Girl who managed to get by a Steven Matthew injury to silence an impressive Team Rawlings club.
     After a bit of floor cleaning, the final bracket, the North Bracket got underway with The Jungle Cats in the Bathroom getting a brief scare before rectifying the situation with two straight solid wins.  Next the Men on the Moon asserted their muscle as they sent Shadood's Stanky Posse into orbit in a two game whitewash.  Surviving a Barrucco face plant, the Scrapyard Junkies changed the channel on the well educated Nicktoons crew.  And in the finale, Giulian and the Six Paisans with their flag waving skills dropped the hammer on O'Doyle Rules despite a very good effort from Matt Lucito.
     Day 2 begins promptly as 3:10PM as both the Boys and Girls Champions will be crowned on Friday.  Good luck to the survivors and thank you to those who fell short and I hope you enjoyed the tournament.

Dodgeball Tournament
Thursday June 10th Round 1-Each Team Will Play Once
Friday June 11th Round 2-All Remaining Rounds, Girls and Boys Championship

     IF Dodgeball 2010 gets approved I anticipate our closest competition ever as nearly one third of the teams are 10 to 1 or better to grab the Title.  The 24 team lot will be separated into three even brackets of eight teams apiece.  For convenience sake I will call them the East, West and North Brackets.  Since the North Bracket will have less games needed to reach the final I have decided to provide a Loser's Bracket Playoff from the Losing Finalist in the East and West who will represent the South Bracket Championship. So for two teams out of 24 a second opportunity might present itself.
     This year's Dodgeball Tournament held on June 10th and June 11th is also a special fundraiser for the Carey Baseball Program and after another successful season we also want to say thank you for supporting us.
     Now let's get down to business.  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.
7) And Most Importantly, The ODDS to Win and the stories that accompany this Site are meant to entertain and stir up some fun interest in the Tournament.  For the 100th time I DO NOT CARE WHO WINS.  If you feel I am favoring certain teams then please do me a favor and DO NOT PARTICIPATE IN THIS TOURNAMENT.   Once again if Dodgeball involved drawing portraits then I would pick seven art students as the 3 to 1 favorites, but since throwing and catching is kind of important then I might pick athletes who are good at that!!!!!!! :)
