Injury Notice

Hello Good People,

I just wanted to send a quick message out to everyone. The Subject: Injuries related to Dodgeball.

(i.e. People were horsing around between games and sustained a sprained ankle from slipping on a ball.)  Continue reading “Injury Notice”

2013 Michigan Dodgeball Cup Recap


The #4 GVSU Lakers won their record sixth Michigan Dodgeball Cup, going 3-0 on the day with wins over #6 SVSU (2-1 in OT), #10 CMU (4-0), and #3 MSU (3-2.) Grand Valley had a team effort, as their depth really showed in the tournament. There were multiple times that star players Mark Trippiedi (GVSU #8-C) and Dylan Fettig (GVSU #24-A) were on the bench, and the Lakers were able to hold off rallies and win points. All four teams had good showings though, with everyone having bright spots in their games.
