Louis Angelloz, Labarre Associates, winds up to throw a ball.After 15 other teams were eliminated, Labarre Associates’ “LA Dodgers” and Restoration 1’s “Ball of Duty” battled for first place at the Livingston Young Professionals Dodge Ball Tournament on March 21. Labarre Associates finally took home the gold in front of more than 130 players and spectators after eliminating each Restoration 1 player.

Teams also came up with unique and creative names to snag the “Best Name in the Game” prize. Fans voted on names like “Dodge it Like it’s Hot,” “Ball of Duty,” and “Can’t Dodge This” in a Facebook poll. Ultimately, Clerk of Court Jason Harris’s team, “Order on the Court” won over the public.

The LYP Leadership Council used the Dodge Ball tournament as an opportunity to highlight Child Advocacy Services. Representatives of the organization attended the event and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to CAS. “Livingston Parish has the highest number of children placed in foster care in the entire state. Child Advocacy Services is a key player in advocating for a smooth transition and the safety of children removed from their homes,” said Jamie Seal, LYP Dodge Ball Chair. 

"Everyone had a great time at the tournament. We are all looking forward to connecting with other professionals in a fun setting again next year," said Kevin Foster, LYP Council Chair.  

Playing for Labarre Associates’ team, “LA Dodgers,” were Logan Labarre, Brooke Johnson, Casey Cottrel, Courtney Jones, Louis Angelloz and Taylor Robert.

Playing for the Restoration 1’s team, “Ball of Duty,” were David Hofstetter, James F., Josh Wall, Marissa Hofstetter, Natasha Miller
and Ross Kinchen.

Forte & Tablada’s team “Forte & Ta-dodge-a Ball” took third place. Playing for Forte & Tablada were Kolin Robert, Madison Mills, Megan Averett, Mitchell Mayard, Shane Robertson
and Jeanette Clark.
