Hempstead, NY - On Thursday, December 3rd, the First Annual Holiday Dodgeball Tournament took place at the Hofstra Recreation Center.  The tournament, co-sponsored by the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) and the Recreation Center, featured fourteen teams of six to eight players each.  After many hard fought battles, the Baseball team prevailed, with a win over Men’s Soccer.  A combination Baseball/Softball team won the prize for the best uniform.  The event raised approximately $400, all of which will be donated to the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Long Island (BBSLI).  In conjunction with the dodgeball tournament, SAAC is sponsoring a Toy & Clothing Drive for BBSLI, with donations being collected throughout the month of December.  Gently used clothing and new, unwrapped toys can be placed in bins that are set-up outside Hofstra’s Mack Sports Complex.
