Sophomore Spikeball Tournament Concludes

Hanlon Shedd

Greenhill’s Sophomore Student Council started a grade-wide Spikeball tournament in late February.

Over the past couple of weeks, there have been games during advisory periods as well as any other unscheduled time. The tournament started with 18 teams and after three rounds, there were two teams left. One team consisted of Adam Kesselman and Nicholas Trimmer, and the other was Andrew Mann and Ben Schakman.

Spikeball is a game that has been gaining popularity over the past couple of years. To play you need a Spikeball net which is a small circular net that is low to the ground, and a ball which is small and light. To win the game, one of the teams has to score 21 points with at least a two-point lead.

Unfortunately, the tournament games had many complications like weather, outbreaks of the flu at Greenhill, and scheduling issues causing the games to be delayed or canceled at times. But the final round of the tournament was able to take place.

Kesselman, Trimmer, Mann and Schakman played the final round on March 31. In the end, Mann and Schakman won the tournament with a final game score of 21-13.
