German, Latin, and Italian clubs hosted a bilingual kickball game on Wednesday, Nov. 9 on the front lawn. They had a bracket style tournament, though the German club was automatically taken to the final round due to their advantage with the number of people. They managed to field somewhere north of 30 players.

Latin and Italian was the first match up. The Italian club was at a severe disadvantage only feilding five players including their advisor.

“I’m a little disappointed,” said Italian teacher George Formicola. “But I still feel confident with the individuals that did show up. I expected more, but next time I’m sure we will come out even stronger.”

The Italian club managed to shock everyone, upstaging Latin club with an 11-4 win and moving on to the most feared opponent of the tournament; German club.

Cash Livingstone, a member of the German club, was not scared of the Italian club at all.

“Italians are the worst team out here,” Livingstone said. “They have nothing against Deutsch.”

German clubs confidence would soon be shattered as Italian club managed to finish their rags-to-riches story, beating German club 7-2.

Italian club’s star pitcher Massi Warner spoke about the incredible win.

“We fought hard and it was a good run,” Warner said.
