Vet Books Dodgeball a Massive Success

On the 13th of October, the Onderstepoort students gathered for the great biennial Vet Books dodgeball tournament. It was expected to be a thriller, with teams from all five of the major corridors ready to leave to defend their honour. Helshoogte reigned supreme in pool one, winning all of their matches – Marli Havenga doing particular damage with her wickedly powerful throws. Pool two was a much tighter affair, with two teams (OP Heights and The Dodgefathers) tied on points at the end of the round robin matches. The winner would have to be decided by a play-off. Although probably the better dressed of the two teams, OP Heights fell short right at the end, unable to capitalize on a good start. And so it was Helshoogte versus The Dodgefathers in the final. It turned out to be a gripping affair – with the lead changing hands multiple times – but with their calm and collected manner, The Dodgefathers clinched the match with a superb final few throws. Despite the intensity and competitiveness, all teams said they thoroughly enjoyed it and would be back for more with the next instalment. A massive shoutout must go to Stoney – our MC – for a fantastic job commentating, as well as to Hills for sponsoring us some great gifts for the winners, runners-up and best dressed.
