A team representing Liberty University placed ninth among 200 teams in a Chick-fil-A-sponsored dodgeball tournament in Richmond on Saturday.
The team, comprised of four current resident assistants, one former resident assistant and two resident directors competed under the name “Jerry Jr.’s Boys.”
The team included Danny Lamonte, Tom Hinkley, Ben Baxley, Charley Peele, Kyle Mullett, Glenn Housden, and Josh Geisler.
Lamonte organized the team.
The Over 18 division of the tournament, one of the 10 largest in the United States, played on 23 separate courts.
Proceeds from the tournament will support relief efforts in Niger, Africa.
“While we were thrilled with our finish and had an incredible time, we were blessed even more by the opportunity to share our testimony directly on two separate occasions and by our encouragement throughout the day,” wrote Tom Hinkley, a member of the team, in an e-mail to LU Chancellor Jerry Falwell, Jr.
