In the beginning eleven teams showed up chasing their dreams for the title of Dodgeball Champions! As games were played and teams fell one by one, only three teams remained: Gilkey Church of God, Freddie Euten for Sheriff, and Rutherfordton Police Department. Now was the real test of the 5 D's of dodgeball: Dodge, duck, dip, dive and dodge." And the results are as follows: 1st place: Freddie Euten for Sheriff, 2nd place: Rutherfordton Police Department, 3rd place: Gilkey Church of God. On behalf of the Rutherfordton Police Department we would like to say Thank You again to everyone that came out and participated or was just there cheering on your favorite team at our 1st Annual Dodgeball Tournament. We would also like to say thank you to all the teams: Rutherfordton Police Department, Fire Ballerz (RFD), B-Crew (FCPD), The Rookies (BLET), Gilkey Church of God, Main Street Financial Group, Rufftown Girls, Caspers Closet, Rutherfordton Hospital, Freddie Euten for Sheriff, Issac Aaron Media, and Crossfit. We hope to see you all on the court again next year! We don’t want to leave anyone out so we would also like to just say Thank You to everyone that gave donations, purchased equipment, helped out, or sponsored teams. In the end, we raised $1,847.62 towards our annual Christmas Cheer Event where we try to make less fortunate children’s Christmas just a little brighter. Without every one of you none of this would have been possible. THANK YOU!
