Wiffle War 2012

On Saturday, Apr. 21, 2012, the sunshine and warm weather was welcomed by Wiffle Wars 2012. Wiffle Wars was a final event put on by Eileen Bennett's Sports Marketing class, and included twenty-three wiffle ball teams competing for the championship on the baseball fields at the P.E. Center. Starting at noon on Saturday, the teams battled in the tournament, which ended victoriously for team Master Batters. The winning team consisted of Kevin Casey (captain), Nick Settemio, Ryan Kirrane, Zack Schleicher, Kyle Foley, and Dave Clark.

The sponsors for the event included Wyld Style clothing, Rome Snowboards, Manny's Downtown Pizza, and Plymouth Ski and Sports. All proceeds from Wiffle Wars went to New England Disabled Sports. Before this final event, the class fundraised by putting on four different bake sales in the Hartmon Union Building, all of which the students of the class had baked themselves. There were also baked goods, soda, water, and hot dogs for sale at the wiffle ball event.

The spring 2012 Sports Marketing class had been preparing for a Rail Jam at Loon Mountain to be put on in April. Most of their fundraising was geared toward that event. However, due to weather conditions at Loon, the Rail Jam had to be cancelled over spring break. Sports Marketing student and senior, Ryan Degroff said "When we came back, we decided to go with Wiffle Wars, trying to keep students interested in an event that was not so school oriented and something you could do with friends". 

Overall, the event was an enjoyable accomplishment. There were many people there playing in the wars, watching, or just enjoying the sunshine. Although the project was faced with a little twist, the outcome was successful. Congratulations to the winning team, Master Batters and the spring 2012 Sports Marketing class for a successful final event.
