WHS DECA club to host ultimate frisbee tournament

Members of the Washington High School DECA Chapter will be hosting an Ultimate Frisbee Tournament Sunday at North Elementary. Proceeds from the tournament will go to the Derek Ray Arvin Memorial Scholarship Fund and the Zachary Taylor Blubaum "Pay it Forward" fund.

Students in DECA, an association of marketing and business students that compete in events at the district, state, and international levels, complete a Community Service Project each year. This year Andrew Brothers and Kendall Elliot are heading the Ultimate Frisbee Tournament for the project.

"The Community Service Project is a chapter-wide event," said Brothers. "It has been a very successful project in the history of our DECA Chapter. The purpose of the project is to raise money and awareness for a selected community service or charity."

Last year, Connor Brashear, Blaine Arney, and Brothers also chose to raise money in memory of Arvin and Blubaum. "Derek and Zach were both close friends of the three of us and they were involved in DECA, so it only seemed right to do the project in their memory," said Brothers.

Over $19,000 was raised for the two memorial funds. "We were state champions in the Community Service Project last year," said Brothers. "We also competed at the International DECA Conference. Kendall and I are trying to repeat that achievement this year."

To compete in the tournament, teams need to consist of seven to nine players. The cost per team is $25 and all games will take place on the practice fields at North Elementary. For more information on the tournament, contact Brothers at andrewbrothers@outlook.com.
