“It was over when we walked in the door,”said senior Jamael Troy, a co-coach with Riley Culwell, of the adult VFTA dodgeball championship team. This he stated early in the games as the Van-Far Teachers Association (VFTA) held a fundraising dodgeball tournament Friday, April 5.
There were eight teams with 10 kids each.
“We had five junior high to adult teams and three elementary school teams,” said Kris Cross, who announced the event. “The Van-Far Barstool team won the older bracket and Reece Culwell’s team won the elementary school bracket.  Van-Far Barstool was made up of Jayson Orr, Caden Wilburn, Colin Wilburn, Jayle Jennings, Jordan Garner, Aidan Lowrance, Brock Bennett, Morgan Slatten, Trey Miller, and Logan Wilson.
The elementary school champion was made up of Reece Culwell, Dalton Hays, Garnett Hopke, Caleb Baskett, Trenton Beatty, Gaven Gatson, Addyson Hays, Ty Evans, and Mariah Maggard.
The VFTA made about $2,000 dollars for scholarships between the dodgeball tournament,  concessions, and the silent auction.
The VFTA would like to thank everyone who came out to support us so that it can keep sponsoring scholarships for our students.
All proceeds from the event go to the VFTA Scholarship Fund.
