Updated: October 9, 2014

Just like that the Tourney slate is behind us and we have just 3 weeks left until the Playoffs!  The #PlayoffPush is officially on. There’s a ton left to settle before then however.. Before we get into the Dodgeball Tourney, here’s this Week’s Highlight Video.

For the second straight week the Power Rankings will look a little different ..  There will be a run down of the Knockout Rounds of the Dodgeball Tourney below then a top 8 Power Rankings will be revealed at the bottom of the article.  Next week the normal format will return.. First lets Congratulate the new 2014 Champaign League Dodgeball Tourney Champs – Team SAE 17s (Cookie Jar)!

Dodgeball Tourney – Knockout Round Recap

During Pool Play rounds there was a bit of a feeling out process for all of the Teams.. It’s not every day you play competitive dodgeball after all.. When the dust settled we had 4 pool winners.. Who looked a lot like the ones from the previous week: Teams SAE 17s & 15s along with Team Evans Scholars and Team AKL took home a big 7 points for surviving pool play and winning their respective groups.. Then after doing some tough math it was Team ATO 16s and Team ZBT who would advance as wild card groups.

When it came down to the end of the night we were set up with a 3rd Place Game of Team SAE 15s who would take down Team ZBT in that one..  Then it was on to the Championship Game.. Team SAE 17s and Team AKL. Both Teams searching for that elusive W that would shoot them up the Standings (and Power Rankings).  When the final ball was thrown it was Team SAE 17s left victorious in the dodgeball arena.. It proved to be an SAE night as both Teams finished in the Top 3.

With just 3 weeks remaining and most of the available points behind us it will be very interesting to see who makes a move for those final Playoff spots!  Remember only 10 Teams will qualify!

Congrats again to SAE 17s (Cookie Jar)!
