A Closer Look at the Region

A Closer Look at the Region- (Midway Conference)

Next year should be a great for our region of the league. Just two years ago there were only three teams: DePaul, Platteville, and Nebraska.  Now we have eight teams in our area (UW- Eau Claire, UW-Whitewater, UW-Platteville, DePaul, Northern Illinois, North Park, Nebraska, and Minnesota) and it won’t take long for these teams to be competitive.   I interviewed each team and here is what they had to say.

Chicago Dodgeball Combine

Well, it is the only tournament this weekend and once again it is between two heavy weights DePaul and Platteville. They are playing each other for the 7th time this year, which I believe is the most between any two teams in the league.  Both teams will be playing in the Chicago Dodgeball Combine.  It will be a double header with the first game starting at around 12:30p.m.  Let’s take a look at the teams.   Continue reading “Chicago Dodgeball Combine”

Zanderthon Throw-Down 2

Zanderthon Throw-Down 2

Well, it is the most anticipated tournament of this semester. Two great teams, the DePaul Dodgeball Society and Platteville Dodgeball Club will duke it out once again for the sixth time this year on Saturday, February 25, 2017. There will also be some UWP alumni dodgeball players joining  the fun that day. I also want to give these alumni a shout out for being a part of and starting the club ten years ago. Your determination to play dodgeball has led to me and others on the team making many new friends from around the country.  It should be interesting to see how these games turn out. The games this year have been all over the place from an overtime in Nebraska to a blowout game at DePaul.  The last few matches have been more competitive and DePaul is showing that they can hang in there and cause teams problems.  With that said let’s take a look at the match ups for the day.

Cornhusker Clash

Cornhusker Clash (841 N 14th St, Lincoln, NE 68508)

This week kicks off the first tournament of the year for teams of Nebraska, DePaul, and Platteville. The Cornhusker Clash should be a blast and should provide some quality games for the teams participating. The last time that Nebraska held a tournament was two years ago and Platteville and DePaul attended. These teams all have experience which makes this a much different tournament than two years ago.

Let’s take a look at the teams at the Cornhusker Clash.  Continue reading “Cornhusker Clash”
