On Wednesday, October 13, 2010, the Academies of Advisors Program at the Boston University School of Medicine (BUSM) held its first annual Dodgeball Tournament. The Rebecca Lee Crumpler Academy won this inaugural event, defeating the Louis W. Sullivan Academy 3 games to 2 in the final round of play.
The Crumpler Academy team, also known as the Trailblazers (aka the Crumpinators), consisted of 2nd year students Jon Dashkoff, Christopher Luke, and 1st year students Daniel Chung, Nikki Croteau, DJ Gadaleta, Apar Gupta, Lindsey Storer, and Christopher Tonn.
The Crumpinators benefited from a first round bye due to the single elimination, blind draw tournament format. They faced off against a strong Keefer Academy team lead by second year students Bill Hammond, Ben Isakson, and a red-footie pajama clad Stephen Alerhand.
As winners of the Academies Volleyball Tournament, the players and their entire Academy will receive a free breakfast buffet courtesy of the Academies Student Steering Committee and the Office of Student Affairs!
Crumpler Academy also won the 1st Annual Academies of Advisor Volleyball Tournament, held on February 23, 2010. The Crumpinators will look to defend their Volleyball title at the 2nd Annual Volleyball Tournament on Wednesday, February 23, 2011.
