Lancaster/York ‘Tinkerbells’ Win First-Ever ‘Wildcat Wars’

The Tinkerbells, representing Lancaster and York halls, topped two of the day’s four events (kickball and dodgeball) to amass 40 points and win Penn College’s inaugural “Wildcat Wars” competition Saturday. The team managed to hold off the “V Squad Mafia,” from The Village at Penn College, which placed second in three events to finish close behind with 37 points. Rounding out the field in hard-fighting fashion were the four remaining teams: “CDJ” (Clinton, Delaware and Juniata halls), winner of the foul-shot contest, finishing with 36 points; “Dauphin Kills” (Dauphin Hall), winner of the afternoon’s final Capture the Flag event, 27 points; the “Party Animals” (Off-Campus), 21 points; and “CVA All the Way” (Campus View Apartments), 20 points. “The event saw more than 200 students cram the Field House and Intramural Field in hopes that their team would dominate the Wildcat Wars,” said Jeremy R. Bottorf, coordinator of intramural sports/campus recreation. “At the end of the day, everyone enjoyed a picnic dinner to replenish all of the energy that was lost during the rough-and-tough competition.”
