In three events across a similarly expansive swath of the country as last week, we played 15 ranked matches and three JV contests. This has brought the records to a nice and round 1300 ranked matches. We saw a feature article with Dylan and Felix, in this feature article, Felix and I will present some more fun facts regarding that large chunk of data. Complete records span eight seasons, from the Opening Match on 2010-09-25 to this weekends games of 2017-10-08. While we have a number of matches recorded from 2005-2010, those records are not complete and as reliable so we refer to those as the dark times.
We had three events this weekend at PSU, GSU, and GVSU.
50 matches played in the 2018 Season (another round number!)
23 teams of our 32 active teams have played (not as round)
College Dodgeball closed out the opening month of the 2018 Season with an action packed Saturday. Fifteen teams played acrossthreevenues spread over 1215 travel miles, where 21 ranked matches were played, and in which 118 points were scored.

We are only three events in and 14 ranked matches into the 2018 Season. We’ve already had 11 teams compete, and we have oodles more games (at least 21) to see this upcoming weekend with events at UNL (Cornhusker Clash), Kent (Summit Street Slugfest), and UMD. There’s a lot of activity to close out a very busy September. I can’t express how excited I am to see the match count grow.
This weekend saw only five ranked matches and no technical upsets. They were held at Towson and a double header at UK. In the current Gonzalez System, there are now 239 technical upsets in 1264 ranked matches since accurate record keeping started 2010-09-25.
