GPRC students celebrated the end of the academic year using the 5 D’s of Dodgeball – Dodge-Dip-Duck-Dive-Dodge.
GPRC’s Howler’s Cup happened on April 12 as part of the college’s meltdown festivities to celebrate the end of the academic year, and summer being around the corner.
The original Howler’s Cup was organized by a past Students’ Association president and was actually a floor hockey tournament.
Our GPRC Student Wellness department wanted to bring it back, and give the students a way to let lose before finals.
And so a Dodgeball Tournament was born.
13 teams of GPRC students came out with most teams wearing matching themed team uniforms competing for some awesome prizes.
- First Place
- Best Team Uniform
- Best Team Name
And the winners were:
Best Team Name – Commerce Crusaders;
Best Dressed Team – Mama Mia
GPRC Student Wellness and GPRCSA would like to thank everyone who came out and participated in this fun afternoon.
“There was a tremendously positive energy right from the very beginning of the tournament,” said Joel Thibault, GPRC Student Wellness Coordinator. “There were some great costumes and so much attention to detail. This was clearly a tournament students were thinking about and looking forward to since we began marketing it!”
Even GPRC’s Farley got in on the action!
GPRC students didn’t hold back and busted out their ninja-like and acrobatic moves to dodge flying Dodgeballs. The afternoon included many underdog victories that really got teams and the crowd roaring!
Majority of the afternoon saw students coming to watch the event, grab a bit to eat and drink provided by the SA, and cheer on their friends and fellow students. The place was packed from 1-3 p.m. with many instructors and users of GPRC’s Fitness Centre coming to check out the action as well.
