Favourite Dodgeball Memory: My favorite memory is probably playoffs from last year where all of Lister didn’t think my team (8-9K) would beat 3-4H. But, somehow the entire team (especially me lmao) was having like the best game that we had played all year. We ended up beating them in a 3-1 victory which felt great and ruined most peoples brackets and it was fantastic

Favourite Dodgeball Memory: There’s lots. Definitely come talk to me if you want to hear more but a nice short sweet one is Matt (my liaison last year) wasn’t paying attention when we were supposed to do the line chant once so I did it myself and everyone kind of looked around shocked that that sound came out of me

If you could pick any three celebrities to be on your dream Dodgefest team, who would you pick and why? Tbh I’d rather play with my non-celebrity friends because I’m comfortable with them and they’re fun! (also I don’t know celebrities and don’t want to choose but shhhhh)

What is the best piece of advice you could give to first years when it comes to playing in the LDL? I’ll give two because I feel like rebelling. 1) give it a shot. I did NOT want to play initially but I was convinced to try it and ended up loving it so here I am! 2) if you’re frustrated, don’t let it show. Slamming a ball on the ground after you get hit may help in the moment but it makes you look awful. Sportsmanship is key. Losses are hard, but at the end of the day, we’re here to play

If you could make a Tuckey Mixtape that symbolizes your life in a nutshell, what three songs would be on it? It would probably be the worst Tuckey playlist ever, not gonna lie. It would have to include something Disney because Disney is great and I have not mastered the whole growing up thing. White and Nerdy Weird Al sums up my exterior pretty well. Then you probably need something that’s actually a decent Tuckey tune because dodgeball is lit
