It gives me great pleasure to announce Brian Hymel as the December Baller of the Month. He is an excellent player and one that you should never throw at alone, as many other teams who have played against him know. Not only is he a great catcher, but he also has strong arm that you have to watch out for. He is definitely a top 10 player in the league and this semester many teams will see why. Check out the conversation below that I had with Brian. Continue reading “BOTM: 2016 December”

Well, folks this marks the last NCDA event of the 2016 calendar year and it should be a good one.

The teams are Whitewater, Platteville, and DePaul. This time around though Whitewater will be experiencing their first 15 vs 15 matches and they are looking forward to it. The games will be played at the Williams Center on the Kris Russell Volleyball Arena courts. Whitewater’s induction match into the NCDA League will be against DePaul, who has participated in 5 total Induction Matches across their history. For this tournament, the Warhawks, Platteville, and DePaul will have 15 players. Our head officiating referees for Sunday will be alumni Brandon Chappell, former president of UWP Dodgeball Club and alumni Zigmas Maloni of DePaul, Director of Officiating for the NCDA.

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”
