Quidditch, anyone?

You may have seen these youngsters, holding a broom between their legs, chasing a live snitch, throwing quaffles and dodging bludgers. And if they're dressed with the colors of Griffindor, well, it's not a coincidence.

Move over, ultimate freesbie. Quidditch, the hottest sport in university circles, has arrived to CSUMB. Last weekend, the Otters joined the ranks of other nearby universities and held its own Quidditch tournament. With very apropos names like "Sons of Snitches," "Hufflepuff," and "Nerfs," teams of Otters spent two glorious Monterey Bay afternoons chasing after a live snitch (the mechanical ball in the movie) while attempting to dodge balls -- bludgers.

And the winners were, naturally, Sons of Snitches!
