On April 30, 2016, eight teams across Borger came together to throw balls at each other all for charity.

The Borger Lions’ Club helps Snack Packs for Kids, Biblical Wellness Center, and other organizations around the community. Phoenix Games and Collectibles contributed 4 teams to play: Cervix Protection Services (due to the fact one player is 4 months pregnant), Tri Lambdas, Bullet Club, and Phoenix Team 4 featuring our very own assistant editor, Alexis Merrell. The remaining teams were Ultimate, Alpha Dogs, Balls for Charity, and the Kiwanis Club.

The Ultimate became the first Champions of the Lions’ Club Annual Dodgeball Tournament, followed by the Alpha Dogs in second place. Phoenix teams Cervix Protection Services and Team 4 took 3rd and 4th place. Borger’s City Council Candidate Milton Ooley, previously the Borger Middle School principal, played on the team for Kiwanis Club, which meant that many of his former students were able to throw balls at their old principal and get away with it.

Overall, the tournament raised about $700 between entry fees and a small concession stand. Way to go, Borger! Also, congratulations to Phoenix for providing half of the players. The Lions’ Club is looking into hosting a kickball tournament in the fall and we hope to see you all there. Maybe the Plainsmen Post will have its own team.

Below are a few pictures from the event, in case anyone missed it.
