Six WKNC DJs put the books down for a few hours Tuesday afternoon to hit the courts in this year’s Exam Jam Dodgeball Tournament, held at Carmichael Gym on NC State University’s campus. Sarahnade, Mollypop, The Chanellor, AudioRush, Muta, and DJ Megashark prepped by dancing to Zumba, playing video games with ROTC, getting massages from Campus Rec’s specialists, and practicing bravery in the wrecking-ball bounce house.
WKNC was the second team to play, matched against a fast-pitching team of NCSU students. The heart-wrenching match went on for a significant amount of time – both teams dodged, dipped, ducked, dove and dodged with grace. This included WKNC DJs jumping over balls as they sped towards them and retrieving the opponent’s missed throws in the blink of an eye. The last two standing were AudioRush and Megashark, being cheered on by the rest of the team. Unfortunately, despite their valiant efforts, they too were taken down after a few minutes.
