A friendly rivalry between the Air Force and Army’s ROTC programs led to an intense dodgeball game Friday morning.
We wished the best for both teams since University Housing offers Living Learning Communities (LLCs) for both ROTC groups.
Amanda Bobo, Pomfret Hall’s coordinator for resident education was on hand for the early morning competition. She shared the excitement.
“Arriving early to the HPER, the students had their game face on and were ready to compete to the very end. Tensions were high, and spirits were excited.
“Rules were explained, and guidelines were set. There would be three different matches. Winner takes all the bragging rights. Match one began. The Air Force ROTC quickly took the first match. The second match began, and the Army ROTC looked like they might win. However, Air Force battled back and took match two. Match three began, and the Air Force ROTC once again took the match.
“In the end, the Air Force ROTC won the day three matches to none. It was intense. It was exciting. It was fun.”
Congrats to both competing teams.
