BUCKHANNON -

Buckhannon residents helped support the Relay for Life campaign with a dodgeball tournament on Friday night.

It was held at the National Guard Armory

This was the first annual Dodgeball Tournament sponsored by the Buckhannon Fitness Center.

Volunteers said there were at least 20 teams.

The cost per team was $80 for the open division and $60 dollars for the family division.

"Oh my heavens. I'll tell you the excitement is unreal. We expected to have a really cool turnout and a really cool game, but it goes beyond our expectation. I'm doing score keeping and I'm just as excited ready to jump in the court myself," said Belinda Lewis, a volunteer

Lewis also said anyone who missed the tournament really missed out on a good time. All proceeds from the teams will go to Relay for Life, in the battle against cancer.
