It was a successful weekend for a tournament as DePaul and University of Wisconsin Platteville (UWP) welcomed Southern Illinois University Edwardsville (SIUE) to the league as the 48th school to play in the NCDA. The following were the results of the day:
This past weekend, the University of Akron was host to 12 other squads including THREE JV squads! This was the largest tournament of the 2017-2018 season so far, and might be the largest until Akron hosts the second annual WAR sometime in the spring. During the tournament we saw some great match-ups, some nail biting inducing overtime points, some squash matches, but all in all, it was a great weekend of dodgeball. Adam Hynes and I take a look.
Anyone who follows college dodgeball closely knows that this past weekend featured a number a great events across the country. This past Saturday, Penn State hosted James Madison, Maryland, and Towson in an East Coast tourney that would provide more insight into where each of those teams are at. Also on Saturday, one of college dodgeball’s newest rivalries took place on the campus of Georgia Southern. UNG and GSU battled it out with a double-header, in the South Region’s first event of the season. Then, on Sunday, Grand Valley hosted their Gauntlet tournament with every Michigan school (plus Kent State) in attendance.

A little overdue, but Penn State came out the big winners in one of the two opening tournaments of the Spring 2017 season. To recap, PSU finished 3-0, followed by VCU who went 2-1, Ohio who went 1-2-1, and Akron who finished the weekend 0-3. It was a very competitive tournament, and each game could have gone either way. Below are some of the takeaways from each team’s performances.
