The name of the game was dodgeball Thursday night, in the Battle for Breezy Point. 

"It's the 5th Annual Dodgeball Tournament here at Norwalk High School. It's a great way to raise money and really get the whole school involved," said Norwalk High School senior Brody O'Brien.

"We are raising money for the Breezy Point Fire Department that was wrecked during Hurricane Sandy," said Norwalk High School senior Christian Bonebrake.

Proceeds from the tournament will also support Norwalk High School students.

"We are also allocating some money for the Helping Hands Foundation here at Norwalk High School that helps raise money for kids who can't usually afford to attend certain events," added Bonebrake.

With 24 teams competing for the championship title, organizers say this years tournament is the biggest one yet.

Senior Marisa Noonan said, "This is the first year we have had 24 teams. It has usually been 20 teams in the past but this year it was really nice to see a lot of freshmen and sophomores getting involved because they are the kids who are going to carry on the tradition."

Players say although it does get very competitive, being able to give back is worth it.

Ryan Evans, senior on the dogeball team "the Monstars" said, "It is our last year to really do anything [at the school] so we try to participate in all the events we can at school - and it's for a good cause."

For Norwalk HS seniors, they hope the tradition of giving back continues.

"That we worked hard to make something that is going to last and that the work we have put in pays off," said senior Bridget McCallum.

"I want it to be something that everyone marks their calendar for and that everyone wants to get involved. Everyone wants to be on a team or not on a team, I want everyone to want to be here and see it," added Bonebrake.
