On Wednesday, May 31st, Hackley’s senior class hosted their last P.S. 81 Dodgeball Tournament at the Zetkov Athletic Center. The P.S. 81 Dodgeball Tournament is an annual event that began in 2014. It was inspired by the Class of 2017’s dedication to their community service project with P.S. 81, a public school in Brooklyn, NY. After four years of continued service, the senior class passed off their service project to the sophomore class. Beginning this past school year, the sophomore and senior classes have volunteered at P.S. 81 and will continue to do so in the future.

The dodgeball tournament is now a beloved tradition at Hackley, where students form groups of six to eight to compete in brackets. This year, the tournament had a large turnout, both in players, onlookers, and those who participated and helped out with the bake sale and the raffle tickets.

The winning team in the boys’ bracket is led by Silas Lenihan. The group included juniors Rian Fitzpatrick, Homer Gere, Eli Hankin, Chris O’Sullivan, and Ian Jacobsen. For the girls, a group of freshmen girls decked in Hawaiian shirts dominated, beating out upperclassmen teams. The team, led by Annabel Ives, was composed of freshmen Jordan Miller, Julia Thompson, Sofia Graziano, Leah Holmes, and Emelyn Wenstrup.
