Outside, it was a brisk 60 degrees, but inside Bryce Schurr Gymnasium the atmosphere was nothing less than an inferno. How fitting that out of the 24 team bracket it would be the baseball seniors’ team, the Diablos, coming out of the fire champions once more.

This was my second consecutive year covering Dodgeball Inferno for The Plaid Press; and for the second consecutive year, I went home with no voice from yelling and a smile from ear to ear. It lived up to my expectation of the best school event of the entire year yet again.

These are just a handful of my favorite moments of the night.
