In the latest annual athletic battle royal pitting Beacon College students versus staffers, both sides got their kicks.
In the end, however, youth was served — and, in current parlance, staffers got served — as students beat staffers 19-11 in the Students vs. Staff Kickball game. The game, played, December 14, was the first night game at Beacon Athletic Field.
Sixteen students faced 11 staff members in the game slated for nine innings or 60 minutes — whichever came first. Yet, the contest extended an extra inning.
“The students beat us badly in nine innings,” said Steven McDaniels, director of fitness and athletics at Beacon College in Leesburg, Fla., “but since there was still time on the clock, students wanted to play an additional inning, so they could cream us some more.”
