Baseline Middle School’s Dodgeball Committee is busy putting plans together for this years big tournament. Students should start organizing their teams. Remember, a team is made up of 4 players, can consist of any combination of students from grades 6-8 at BMS, and must have at least one person of each gender.
Dream big! Your team could be the 2013 Baseline Dodgeball Champions!!!!
