Nakama has emerged as the only undefeated team after four rounds of Roccball at Marianas High School’s annual Roccball season of games. 
Nakama was able to remain undefeated by outscoring Team Bandits, 39-25, last week at the Marianas High School Gymnasium.

Defending Roccball champions Tomadachi was defeated by Team Lotus, 35-32. Team Lotus was also able to outscore Tomodachi in multiple point scoring methods with 6 aces to 4, 2 xunks to 0, and 3 goals to 1.  As a result of good defensive plays by Team Lotus, Tomodachi was limited to the fewest multiple point scoring methods in a game this year.

In the games between Dusty Feetz and Sufa and Phan Gotte and I Hit That, Phan Gotte and Dusty Feetz won their games, 39-25, and 32013, respectively.

The Heavy Hitters of Roccball after four rounds of competition are Jerome Manzon and Rizza Relucio of Team Tomodachi. Manzon has scored 16 aces, 1 xunk, 2 kees, and 5 goals for 45 points. Relucio has scored 7 aces for 14 points.

The title of Heavy Hitter is awarded to players who have scored the most points scored in addition to the floor point scoring system used in volleyball. Manzon and Relucio will be awarded Roccball T-shirts for being the Heavy Hitters after four rounds of competition

The current team standings is Nakama with a 4-0 win-loss card, followed by Tomadachi (3-1), Lotus (3-1), Dusty Feetz (3-1), Phan Gotte (2-2),  Bandits (1-4), Sufa (0-4), and I Hit That (0-4). (PR)
