Dodgeball at HSE this past weekend
Synchronization is tough to defend in dodgeball, making it clear that Mean Bernie's squad had a strategy going into High School East's dodgeball tournament April 28.

May 4, 2023-- High School East has been in need of a ropes course for its Military Club for some years now. Recently, the school upped its game in this quest, rallying the Toms River community through some friendly (?) competition.

Scott Kenny, the school's security officer, organized a dodgeball tournament that took place April 28. Hosted at RWJBarnabas Health Arena, the event brought together students from all district high schools, staff, sports teams, military personnel (right), Toms River Police Department, and more, plus local sponsors like Capone's, the Army National Guard, and others.

The photos from East's Allison Goodwin (below) tell the story-- a great time for a good cause.

As is the mantra, if you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball. And if you can dream of a ropes course, you can make it happen ... with a little help from some friends.
