WKU has two annual events:

  • Battle of the Bluegrass – game at Butler County High School against UK, raises money for Butler County’s after-prom program

Founded in 2007 by Josh Raymer, WKU Dodgeball has gained a reputation in the National Collegiate Dodgeball Association (NCDA) as a team that’s both a tough opponent and a fun game. WKU has hosted Nationals and raised thousands of dollars for charitable causes through a St. Jude tournament and annual fundraising games in Morgantown and Elizabethtown. The Hilltoppers are a group driven by a shared love of dodgeball and the desire to share the game with as many people on WKU’s campus as possible. WKU Dodgeball – “Where the rubber meets your face!”
