A dodge ball tournament is taking place on Friday, April 26th to help raise money for Relay for Life. The tournament will consist of eight different teams made up of five students. Each team must pay $25 in order to participate.
Students will be on an activity schedule for the school day. The last hour of fourth block will be dedicated to the tournament. Students must pay one dollar to watch the competition. The tournament is for entertainment, and some have called it a “duel of the grades.”
One senior team whose name is rumored to be “Jesse’s Girl” is expected to come out on top and win the one hundred dollar prize for first place.

Freshman J.T. Phillips was jailed on four charges on the morning of April 20th in Athens, GA. Coach Perno has finalized that Phillips is no longer part of the University of Georgia baseball team.
Perno stated, “Just the thought that the night before the biggest doubleheader of the season and he puts himself in a situation like that. He doesn’t care about this team or this program. He’s dismissed.”
Phillips was scheduled to start at first base Friday night against Vanderbilt. That game was postponed due to rain. The two teams played twice Saturday without Phillips.
The charges included: DUI alcohol, failure to produce a license on demand, going the wrong way on a one-way street and underage possession of alcohol. All of the charges are misdemeanors and the bond for all four totaled to $3,000. He was released on a $1,500 bond.
Phillips played for the three state championship teams at Columbus High School, and was also a member of the 2006 Northern Little League team that won the World Series.
