This fall, WCC Sports added an extra day of dodge-ball to the schedule and had three talented dodge-ball teams participate. The sport is more than just the subject of a motion picture comedy–it’s quickly becoming a favorite among college students looking to flex their athletic prowess while having some fun. Rough Cuts and Tomakazies were returning teams from last season. Newcomer team Wolfpack was a free agent team built from former players and new players. After some fast-paced regular season play, Wolfpack took first place, giving them the first round bye in the playoffs. Rough Cuts who finished in third place faced the second place team Tomakazies. The winner would go on to play the Wolfpack in the Championship Game.
Tomakazies goes on to win the first two matches in the playoffs. In the third match, the Rough Cuts had five players to Tomakazies one. Within in a matter of minutes, the Rough Cuts had one player to Tomakazies three. The Tomakazies ended up winning that match and proceeded to win the game five to three. In the championship game, Tomakazies turned it around and won the first two matches but then lost ten straight matches to the Wolfpack. The Wolfpack was ultimately crowned with the WCC Intramural Dodge-ball title.
This past October, WCC Sports has introduced its first Penny War benefitting the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life. In a penny war, two or more groups compete to win a fundraising competition. Each group has a jar for collecting coins or dollar bills.
Here’s how it works. The value of any pennies and bills collected by a group count positively toward that group’s point total, while the value of other coins are subtracted. A penny is worth two positive points; nickels are worth negative five points; dimes are worth negative ten points; and quarters are worth negative twenty-five points. Bills are positive and worth the amount of pennies in the specific bill. Groups such as club sports teams, intramural participants, and different departments at Washtenaw Community College are participating in this semester’s competition.
The Penny War will continue through December 6th. The winning group will receive a pizza party and WCC Wolfpack t-shirts. In addition, you can help us reach our Relay For Life fundraising goal at the Sports office by filling up our window and door with American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life “feet”. Each foot represents a one dollar donation and you will have a foot with your name on it to display. COME BY THE SPORTS DEPARTMENT OFFICE AND HELP FIGHT CANCER. EVERY PENNY COUNTS!
Many of WCC’s club sports teams have typically played in the Ann Arbor Recreation leagues, or other recreational leagues in the area.

The Wolfpack’s club baseball team has come a long way from 2011 Fall when I first join the team where we played in the Ann Arbor Rec Baseball League against other adult teams from the city and county. The team (WCC Wolfpack Club Baseball) now plays against other club baseball teams such as University of Michigan, Eastern Michigan University, and Bowling Green State. The Wolfpack plays against the EMU Eagles club baseball team at Oestrike Stadium twice this season. The team will also play it games during the week and weekends. Practices will be held at WCC Baseball Field on Mondays and Thursdays at 6 PM. The team is there to have fun and improve as a team.
Requirements to play on the team are at least a 2.0 GPA and are taking at least 3 full hour credits at WCC.
