Alumni Appreciation- UWP Players

It is January and alumni appreciation month for the NCDA. So I thought it fitting to highlight some of the former players of the Platteville Dodgeball players that helped to make what the club is today.   These individuals were broken up by category comprised of different skills we utilize in the sport of Dodgeball.

With the help of Scott Skelly and Matt Bautch, I was able to come up with the following top players for each skill. Thanks to these two for helping do the writes ups for these alumni. Continue reading “Alumni Appreciation- UWP Players”

Alumni Appreciation- UWP


Alumni Appreciation- Founder of UWP Dodgeball

As you may know, January is alumni appreciation month and I thought it would be fitting to write about how Platteville’s club got started.  Our club started over ten years ago and I’m so happy that it did. I have met a lot of amazing people and made a lot of great friends because of it.  To help tell how the club got started we talked to the founder of the club: Scott Skelly.

UWP- Matt Bautch

An End of an Era for one of the Greats at UWP

Matt Bautch- #8

This semester, Matt Bautch, a great player and one of my best friends, graduated.  He did a lot for our team, which deserves recognition.  For the last 4 and a half years he has been one of Platteville’s best players, and most of the teams who have played against him can agree. Matt was always a very quiet individual and didn’t talk much. In our first few weeks of practice as freshmen everyone called him blue because no one knew his name (He always wore the color blue to practice, hence the nickname Blue).  I can remember walking back to the dorms at midnight after practice while I talked and he just listened.  He wasn’t much for words, but then again, he didn’t have to be, he let his play on the court do his talking.  Matt had one of the strongest arms in the league and could catch about anything thrown his way.  It was always fun watching him go up by himself and push the other team back to the back line.

NCDA Alumni Podcast: February 2014

In the latest episode of the soon-to-be-renamed NCDA Alumni Podcast, the Aluminati discuss the Michigan Dodgeball Cup, Nationals 2014, and dodgeball outside the NCDA. Big questions are raised – Will Nationals ever get too big? Do the results of the MDC affect your view of the favorites heading into Nationals? – and everyone revels in the chance to make fun of McCarthy’s black eye.


AJP: Sept 2013 Alumni Podcast
