  • ACEP Second Place in First Annual Celebrity Dodgeball Tournament

Last month, the College of Engineering and Mines students and faculty hosted the First Annual Celebrity Dodgeball Tournament at the UAF basketball court.

Fifteen teams played in the tournament, with three games played simultaneously. Game referees included Keith Champagne, UAF’s athletic director, and Nate Bauer, director of the UA Press.

CEM Dean Bill Schnabel coordinated the event and participated on the Jammy Dodgers faculty team. ACEP’s Amanda Byrd and Jennifer Harris were the masters of ceremonies. They were joined by a host of other volunteers.

The ACEP team, Power Factor, worked hard through the double-elimination tournament and only lost the final game to The Mambas, a team of UAF hockey-playing engineering students.
