At Town hall, there was a tournament for pickleball where students played teachers. The students were sure they would be victorious for this tournament, especially since they’ve been practicing. There were four games going on simultaneously, and there were two people keeping score together.
For the first matches, teachers were Charley Rupurto and Francis Ayala vs. Justin Sadlel Diaz Arias and Jupiter Gomez. The winners of this match were Jupiter and Justin.
On the next court we had Jennifer Lippold and Greg Fucheck vs. Leonardo Burgos and Brandon Ford. The students lost this round, so Lippold and Fucheck progressed.
For the next matches we had Tene Kelly and Dennis Lupid against John Long and Carlos Cruz. The teachers lost this round, so John and Carlos won.
The next and final court match was Anna Marie Jack and Dan Herguth against Dylan Clementi and Alex Disla. Alex and Dylan won this round.
The semi standoffs were Jupiter and Justin vs. Lippold and Fucheck. Lippold and Fucheck did not win against Jupiter and Justin.
Alex and Dylan went against John and Carlos for the semi finals, and Alex and Dylan lost.
This led to the finals. Jupiter and Justin vs, Carlos and John. They had an extremely long rally, losing and gaining points back to back. As the end came, John missed, giving Jupiter and Justin the absolute victory. Many were happy, others wanted John and Carlos to win. All in all, it was a very intense standoff between the four students.
