Dodgeball game at RIT sets record

Exactly 2,136 people hit their target Sunday when they took aim at setting the record for the largest game of dodgeball in history.

RIT’s Phi Kappa Psi fraternity, in conjunction with the university’s Dodgeball Club held the event.

The game, which featured a team in brown shirts versus a team in orange shirts, took about two hours. At the end, about 30 players were still standing for the victorious orange team.

The school beat the previous record of 2,012 players held by the University of Alberta in Canada.
