Dodgeball back in vogue

Chemainus Secondary School teachers and students do battle

Everything old is new again.

Hula hoops, yo-yos, all that great stuff of the past eventually comes back in vogue. That includes dodgeball, remember that?

They’re playing dodgeball again, probably because the movie sparked a revival, and the Chemainus Secondary school students took on the teachers in a grudge match last week.

Vice principal Jennie Hittinger was like an all-star out there, firing shots at her intended targets.

Of course, the balls are much softer and fluffier now. In the old days, you got hit and it hurt!
