Teams of RWU juniors and seniors will play each other in a mixture of 33 yards of dirt and 200 gallons of water. Students on the teams of 6-8 people paid 5 dollars to enter the tournament. All of the proceeds of this event go to the RWU Inter-Class Council (ICC), which funds events such as dances, outings, and other events which are meant to ensure that RWU students have the best college experience by making sure there is always something fun to do on campus.

Background:

The RWU Inter-Class Council is an organization of class officers whose goal is student satisfaction and an enjoyable college experience for all RWU students. The ICC does this by representing the voice of students in every grade by gathering feedback and addressing class concerns to the Students Senate and other organizations on campus, therefor ensuring the best programs and events for students. The ICC welcomes all students to attend committee meetings, whether they want to give direct feedback or become a part of the organization.

Instructions for media:

Equipment can be set up in to the left of the volleyball courts. Videographers and photographers allowed. Press should show up at 12:30 in order to set up.
