    Broomball tournament

    Post  JadeShao on Wed Mar 10, 2010 11:51 am

    It’s like ice hockey. Well, minus the puck, the ice skates, the hockey sticks, the brutal smashing of players against the wall and plus two mini-dodge balls, tennis shoes, “broom”-sticks and lots of fun. It’s broomball. On Saturday March 6th, AHS Class Council hosted an inter-grade level broomball tournament in which classes from 2010 to 2014 faced off on the ice at the Pasadena Ice Skating Rink.
    Before any playing even began, participants were filled with excitement as they lined up to turn in their money and waivers. Many discussed their plans to dominate the competition, since it was a class rivalry after all, and others just looked forward to having some fun. One student, sophomore Amy Wen commented, “I’m excited, kinda scared. I think it’ll be cold, but fun.” Now, when they say Broomball, they aren’t exactly describing household brooms or the ones that witches fly on, the so called “brooms” are actually aluminum sticks with a rubber-molded triangular head similar in shape to that of a regular broom. With everyone dressed warmly in jackets and wearing colorful gloves, even the two chaperones were dressed down. The tournament on Saturday may be one of the few rare moments that Mr. John Tung left his business suit at home and adopted track pants, and AHS track sweater and a gray beanie.
    The day started out with a scrimmage, as each grade level played the other and eventually advanced to games in which each class played each other. The junior team was the most intense and dedicated to their class victory. A group of athletic boys ironically named “Team Mirai”, since the Pasadena Ice Rink was her home rink, intimidated all other teams with their uniform purple t-shirts and incredible organization. Jon ma was team captain and made sure the boys assembled on the bleachers before their first game, discussing tactics and offensive/defensive strategies. Later on, before they entered the rink, the boys huddled together in a circle chanting and getting pumped up for the game. Although Mr. Tung made sure to make the rules very clear and even demonstrated what kind of moves classified as a foul after listing exactly what kind of things students were not allowed to do. Senior Taylor Rowley later said, “Okay. So for the seniors, there were 16 girls…playing against 25. Big. Junior. Males. We were very scared.”
    At the end, none of the classes managed to defeat the other as there was a tie between the freshman, juniors and seniors with a sophomore loss.
