Senior Plays Demolition Ball

An electric buzz wraps the court in sound. Bumper cars zing back and forth while a white wiffle ball arcs over senior Dalton DaltonLung’s head. The ball finds its way into the center of the hoop and the score board adjusts its large numbers. Dalton plays demolition ball with his friends every Friday at Adrenaline Zone and hopes to start his own league.

“Anybody can be good at it and I thought why not try this and it’s pretty cool,” Dalton said.

Dalton started playing demolition ball during his freshman year. He was introduced to it at a birthday party. Shortly after Dalton fell in love with this new found sport.

“When he first started playing he was very enthusiastic about it and that’s all he talked about,” senior Dillon Lung, Dalton’s twin brother, said.

As time went on, Dalton and his friends became competitive. They entered in a tournament last March sponsored by Church On The Rock and got first place with an ending score of 12-8.

“I think it’s awesome that he has an interest, he’s very competitive and focused,” Debby Lung, Dalton’s mother, said. “I also like how it makes him happy because he enjoys it so much.”

After playing for four years, Dalton decided to try recruit more people to play with him and his friends. He has brainstormed different ways to get the word out at FHN in hopes that he can form a school-sponsored club. They would separate the members into two teams to play against each other.

“You get better at it if you keep practicing and people should come to this place, it’s like the best place ever if you’re bored,” Dalton said.
