At the 2016 installment of Dodgeball Inferno, participating teams and hyped-up spectators brought the intensity. Sitting on the floor in a pool of yearbook photographers just feet away from the competitors, I was able to feel the sheer adrenaline pumping through their bodies as they battled each other for five minutes.

Although the only things at stake were pride and a trophy, the energy level was at a high. With every exciting moment, the crowd became rowdier, their screams bouncing off the walls of the gym, seemingly deafening every person in attendance.

These are the memorable moments captured through the lens of my camera.
