Kick back and play some ball

posted Apr 6, 2016, 10:02 AM by Unknown user

It’s that time of year again, when underclassmen and upperclassmen band together to play kickball. The kickball tournament is put on by Stuco every year. 2016 is the 15th annual tournament. This year, kickball is April 30 with games starting at 9 a.m. at Kyle Trueblood Elementary.

The sign up for kickball will start April 11 and the cut-off date will be April 23. Interested students can sign up with Stuco sponsor Callie Bartelson. The teams can be made up of 10-12 players. The entry fee for teams is $60. Mrs. Bartelson said she must have team members’ names, team names, the entry fee, and the team’s T-shirt design by the cut-off date.

“I’m excited to play,” senior Derek Pauly said, who has played his previous three years as well. “We have a chance to win it one more time.”

Rules for the games are set as well. No cleats are allowed during the games, and cut-off shirts should be worn with a shirt underneath unless they are cut at the shoulder seam. The games are played bracket style, seven innings long with an hour time limit, though Mrs. Bartelson said games typically don’t last that long. Only seven runs can be scored by the team during each at bat.

The team that wins the tournament will receive their entry fee back as a prize.

“I’m excited to play for the first time because it seems like it would be fun,” freshman Dominic Pauly said.
