W Club Hosts Spikeball and Cornhole tournament

By Cameron Beck

On Saturday, March 30th, the W Club hosted a SpikeBall & Cornhole charity event. Over 35 students enjoyed the games on The Lawn on one of the first days of spring at The Forest. The champions were promised $20 Fir Tree gift cards, so the competition was intense. A full 16-team bracket battled it out for a chance at the prize. Latecomers to the tournament, Dylan Walmsley and Thomas Rowland, cruised through four games to win the spikeball championship.

“The Spikeball tournament,” Walmsley said after his victory, “Gave my partner Thomas and I an opportunity to demonstrate why we belong in the GOAT conversation. The competition was tenacious, putting together a commendable effort. In the end though, our chemistry and undeniable love for the game persisted. I’d like to credit a large portion of my success to the great Ricky Bobby for teaching me that there are only two places in this sport: first or last. I love my school. I love Spikeball. And I am ecstatic to claim first place and represent my school with my partner as a champion.”

On the other side of the event, Nick Reeder and Riley Cluff won the Cornhole Championship. The final games ended just before dinner, capping off a great Saturday at the Forest. Students generously gave money beyond their expected entry fee, and all the proceeds from the event went to The Boys & Girls Club of Orange, Virginia. The W Club has planned another Charity event for the weekend of April 27.
