The charity benefiting from a student-organized dodgeball tournament got an unexpected bonus, as the winning team turned over its $500 prize for the cause.
The tournament -- Saturday, March 24, at Assumption College Catholic High School -- was the brainchild of a group in business professor Martha Reavley’s Management and Organizational Behaviour Class: Zach Braga, Tyler Jahn, Evan Rhyno, Mohamad Zein and Nowshin Nur.
“Overall it went spectacular,” said Jahn. “As we dwindled down to the finals, everyone was duking it out and in the end, Team Meadows won.”
The Meadows members turned the $500 prize over to the Miracle League of Amherstburg. The league’s president, Chuck Bondy, said the donation made an impact.
“It’s fantastic!” Bondy said. “Any time we can get any amount, it’s an impressive thing.”
The Miracle League of Amherstburg maintains a specialized baseball diamond for intellectually and physically disabled players.
