The City of Oak Ridge Youth Advisory Board hosted the fifth annual Spring Youth Dodgeball Tournament at the Oak Ridge Civic Center on Saturday, April 2 at the Oak Ridge Civic Center. The event was created to offer local teens the chance to compete in the unique and fast-paced team sport of dodgeball. The double elimination, co-ed tournament hosted 8 teams made up of over 70 local youth, including a team of German foreign exchange students.

“Oak Ridge Elite” captured the Tournament Championship and completed the event with a perfect record, by defeating “Lumberjhorts” 3-0 in the championship match. Team “Off the Wall” also had a good showing coming in third place. Thanks to all the volunteer coaches, players and fans who made this a fun, successful event for students.
