The Snowballs are an all white team introduced in Marble League 2016. The team is represented by Snow, Snowy, Snowflake and Snowstorm.

In Marble League 2016, the Snowballs did poorly and managed to finish only in 14th place after accumulating 14 points. The only medal they won was a bronze in the Relay Run event. Despite not finishing the race in the final run and coming last in the 4 way race, Snowballs were awarded a "consolation bronze" as the official has identified a defect in the lane 1 that the Snowballs were competing in. The Thunderbolts and the Snowballs were both awarded the bronze medal and 5 points each.

In the Marble League 2017 Qualifiers, Snowballs were tied for 13th and thus were eliminated before the final tournament. Snowblast also become a member for Marble League 2018.

The Snowballs were the host team of Marble League 2018 and thus automatically qualified. Their performance in the friendly made them big favorites, but their burn out in the beginning of the games was discouraging before their first gold medal in the sixth event, Team Pursuit. The team ended in seventh place overall.

After falling short of qualifying for the 2019 season, the Snowballs participated in the Marble League Showdown for one of eight spots in the Marble League 2020 Qualifiers. They placed first, and managed to secure a place in the upcoming qualifiers. They finished 15th, missing out on the 2020 Marble League, and collapsed as they finished 10th in the Marble League Showdown, meaning that they will not qualify for the Marble League 2021 Qualifiers.

Team Members

Snow, Snowy, Snowflake and Snowstorm were the original members of Snowballs and the current members of the team. Snowblast joined the team in 2018. Snowflake became team captain in 2019. They were replaced as captain in 2021 by Snowy due to their poor performances in Marbula One Season 1 and the Marble League 2020 Qualifiers.

History

Pre-Marble League

The Snowballs come from the small city of Hailfern in the northeast of North America. When the Snowballs' team members were young, Hailfern was but a village known for its ski slopes. Snowflake lived in an acacia log house on one of the ski slopes there. Their parents were the owners of that particular slope, which they named after them: Snowflake Slope. It remains a tourist destination for marbles who live in the southeast of North America. It is believed that the O'Marbles family, who later formed the O'rangers, used to hang out at the slope before competing in the Fruit Circuit.

Snowflake would travel down the slope every day on their way to school in Hailfern. While at the school's after-school snowtubing club, they met their future teammates, Snowstorm and Snowblast. A few years later, Snowflake founded the school's ski team and started practicing on their family's slope. The Hailfern Ski Team proved a worthy contender and qualified for the regional finals in Blancouver. During the finals, Snowflake found out that their parents had been killed in an avalanche. They dropped out of the competition and returned home. Snowstorm and Snowblast talked to the other ski teams to try and raise support for Snowflake's family.

The Snowballs in Marble League 2016

The Blancouver team, headed up by Snow and Snowy, donated their funds from hosting to Snowflake's family. Snowflake dropped out of school to help their other parent run the ski lift. Months later, the team from Blancouver came to Hailfern for a competition. Snowflake came along to support their former team. Snow, Snowy and Snowstorm came to visit them to recount their previous competitions. They later went out and rolled together into the night. They then promised to meet up again.

Snowflake's parent supported their child in marble sports. Snowflake eventually rejoined the school ski team and, once they graduated, Snowflake, along with Snow, Snowy and Snowstorm, moved to Snoronto to attend the University of Snoronto. They continued to compete together in various university marble sports competition. They eventually came to be known as the Snowballs, and they made rivals of the university's other main group: the Gliding Glaciers, who hail from the island city of Glidavik. The Snowballs became one of the most popular university teams in North America and brought international attention to Hailfern.[2]

The Snowballs and the Gliding Glaciers decided to hold tournaments against each other in a variety of winter sports, including bobsled, curling and ice dash. These competitions started to define the university's culture as they were covered by local and regional news stations. The more they competed against each other, the lower the stakes felt to the point where they started to realize they had a lot in common and started to become more acquainted.

News of their competitions started to spread internationally and came to the attention of Jelle Bakker. As the Snowballs were leading the competition at the time, Jelle invited them to compete in Marble League 2016, which they accepted. Both the Snowballs and the Gliding Glaciers graduated in Spring 2016, ending their university rivalry.[3]

2016

The Snowballs had a decent start to Marble League 2016, gaining one point in the first event, Balancing, and five points and a technical bronze medal due to a track defect in Event 2, the Relay Race. However, they only managed to earn another eight points over the next ten events, earning no points in six of those events, finishing the competition in a disappointing 14th place.[2]

The Gliding Glaciers held a friendly tournament to celebrate the construction of their artificial bobsled track and they invited the Snowballs to compete. During the competition, the Gliding Glaciers set a track record of 6.588 seconds, over a second faster than the Snowballs. This was the final of the showdown, and this led the Glaciers to win the competition 3-2.[3]

2017

The Snowballs returned to the Marble League for the Marble League 2017 Qualifiers with high hopes. However, those hopes were soon crushed. They came fifth and eighth in the first two events, but earned no points in the final two events. The team came joint 13th with the Kobalts and the Balls of Chaos, four points short of qualifying. The Snowballs realized they needed more professional experience, so in the offseason, they went to the MFC Championship League, which the Balls of Chaos mentioned to them, and competed there as an exhibition team.

Meanwhile, Snowblast had stayed in Hailfern and rebuilt the Hailfern Ski Team to win its first regional title. The village had also started to expand in business. A construction company, Arctic Corporation, started working on an arena and training facilities for the Snowballs on the opposite side of the mountain from Snowflake Slope. The stadium was named the Arctic Circle upon completion.

During the fall on 2017, the stadium was visited by Jelle Bakker and Greg Woods during their world tour, after visiting the Royal Family of Snoronto. They liked the stadium so much that they offered the Snowballs the honor of hosting Marble League 2018. The team accepted and became the first team to host a Marble League.[2]

2018

The Arctic Circle

The Snowballs automatically qualified for Marble League 2018 as hosts. They recruited Snowblast as their reserve member for the Marble League 2018 Friendly Round, which was a practice round for them. They dominated the round, staying in the lead ahead of Marble League mainstays – the Savage Speeders, the O'rangers, and Mellow Yellow. Because of this, the Snowballs quickly became a favorite for the championship title.

The Snowballs proceeded to start the main competition really well, with Snow finishing fourth in the first event, the 5 Meter Ice Dash. However, in the next event, the Ski Jump, Snowstorm had a mediocre performance, finishing ninth, and then the team came last in the Halfpipe event. A mediocre seventh place finish in the Bobsled event saw the team fall to 13th overall. At this point, fans were starting to question the Snowballs' status as title contenders.

The Snowballs after winning the gold medal in the Team Pursuit

The team managed to turn things around in the next three events, with the team's first actual medals, a bronze for Snowflake in Speed Skating, and a gold in Team Pursuit. They followed this up with a fourth place finish for Snowy in the Snow Rally. This put the team in second overall. However, the Snowballs did not medal again and had dropped to eighth by the end of Event 11, Ice Hockey.

Before the final event, a blizzard in Hailfern led to an avalanche that destroyed the stadium and severely damaged the Snowballs' training facilities. The Bakker brothers and the IMC decided to use the Bakker Bowl as a temporary stadium for the final event, Sand Mogul Race. Snow was chosen to represent the Snowballs in the event. They reached the semifinals and was tied with Ocean of the Oceanics for time. As a result, the Snowballs concluded Marble League 2018 in seventh overall, tied with the Raspberry Racers for points, but ahead with a gold medal over the Raspberry Racers' silver, also from the Team Pursuit event.

The Snowballs began to rebuild the stadium in the offseason. They also competed in two events: the 100 Meter Water Race, where Snowflake did not finish, and the Amazing Maze Marble Race, where the team came second-to-last.[2]

2019

The team's struggles continued into the Marble League 2019 Qualifiers, where the team finished in 18th place, thus failing to qualify for Marble League 2019. Snowflake made a comment suggesting that the conditions weren't fair at the Seven Seas Stadium, the stadium of the Oceanics. This drew scrutiny from the Oceanics. The Snowballs dropped the charges after negotiations between the Royal Family of Snoronto and the Royal Family of Dunduei.

The Snowballs then heard of the announcement for the Marble League Showdown 2019 and got back to training in their recently repaired training facility. The team did exceptionally in the competition, earning a medal in all events except for Collision. Snowstorm earned a bronze medal in the Sand Rally, Snow won gold in the Funnel Race, and the team claimed silver in Balancing. The team earned 53 points and won the Showdown, securing their spot in the Marble League 2020 Qualifiers.[2]

2020

Marbula One Season 1

While training for Marble League 2020, the Snowballs received an invitation from the JMRC to take part in Marbula One Season 1. They happily accepted it and chose Snowy and Snowflake to represent them.

The two marbles had opposite performances in Marbula One. Snowy medaled in all their races except one, earning a bronze at the Savage Speedway and the Midnight Bay Circuit, and winning the Short Circuit Grand Prix, finishing second place in the Individual Championship. On the converse, Snowflake was notable for their poor performances, scoring points once at the O'raceway but had poor results at the other races, including a 14th place finish after starting from pole position at the Hivedrive Grand Prix. The team ultimately finished with 66 points, good enough for fourth in the Team's Championship.

During Marbula One Season 1, the Royal Family of Snoronto met with the Snowballs about finishing the reconstruction of the Arctic Circle. There was a lack of funding for the project and they needed to raise some money if they wanted the stadium finished soon. Coach Blizzard stayed in Snoronto looking for a manager for the team who could help oversee construction of the stadium. Blizzard eventually found Avalanche, a marble who had recently moved to Snoronto from Osnow. They had spent time designing circuits and facilities in the Stormholm area including the Short Circuit and had been hired by Mellospace Industries as a professional Marbula One circuit designer. Avalanche agreed to be the manager and dedicated a portion of their funds to finishing the Arctic Circle which was finished by the end of the Momotorway Grand Prix. In the offseason, the team returned to Hailfern to train in the newly refurbished Arctic Circle.[2]

Marble League 2020

Despite winning Marble League Showdown 2019, the Snowballs were not able to qualify for Marble League 2020. They had multiple mid-pack results in the first three events, putting them in seventh, a qualification spot, at the start of the final event, the 5 Meter Sprint. Snowflake, looking to redeem themselves, was selected to compete in the final event. Unfortunately, their shaken confidence got the better of them and Snowflake finished in last place, dropping the team to 15th overall and out of the competition. For the second straight year, the Snowballs would be watching the Marble League from the sidelines. Since the Snowballs failed to qualify, they decided to start the "ColdForGold" campaign, supporting the Minty Maniacs in Marble League 2020. This began a friendship with the team.

Unfortunately, the teams' struggles continued into Marble League Showdown 2021 where they would place bottom half in every event except for the Relay Run where, after leading a majority of the race, Snowflake bounced in the anchor leg and finished fourth. This string of bottom half finishes included a last place finish in the Halfpipe. The Snowballs finished the competition in tenth, initially ruling them out of competing in the Marble League 2021 Qualifiers. Following their disappointing Showdown, the team travelled to Winterpeg for a skiing vacation.[2]

Marbula One Season 2

After the Showdown, Snowflake resigned their role as captain over to Snowy following Snowflake's poor performances in Marbula One Season 1 and the Marble League 2020 Qualifiers. At the same the Snowballs received an invitation to participate in Marbula One Season 2, which they accepted. Snowy, the runners-up of last season's individual championship would return for the second edition of Marbula One. However, the Snowballs decided to replace Snowflake, and chose Snowstorm to take their place. Before the start of the season, Avalanche received a phone call from Jelle Bakker asking if they would be interested in hosting a Marbula One Grand Prix. Avalanche accepted and designed the Arctic Circuit.

Snowy had a disastrous start to the new season of Marbula One, barely qualified for the Minty Mania Grand Prix in 15th. However, by the end of the race Snowy made an impressive comeback, finishing the race in fifth. Snowstorm's opening at the O'raceway Grand Prix was mixed. At one point they climbed to third in the race before dropping back and finishing in 11th. Snowy followed this up with a seventh place finish at the Honeydome Grand Prix. Snowstorm was selected to compete in the next two Grands Prix and unfortunately failed to qualify in both of them. The final Grand Prix of the first half of the season was at the Snowballs' home track, the Arctic Circuit. Unfortunately, Snowy would only earn one point, dropping the team to 12th overall at the end of the first half of the season.[2]

2021

Marble League Winter Special

The Snowballs were invited to the Marble League Winter Special which they accepted, despite not being the hosts. Snowy opened the mini tournament with a respectable sixth in the Ice Dash. Unfortunately, the team performed poorly in the rest of the tournament, with their next best performance being an eighth place in Ice Hockey. This also included the questionable decision by Coach Blizzard to put in Snow in Speed Skating instead of Snowflake, who had medaled in the event in Marble League 2018. Snow could only manage 14th. At the end of the tournament, the Snowballs were in last place overall, very demoralizing for a winter-themed team.[2]

Marbula One Season 2

During the Winter Special, Avalanche had been designing the next Marbula One track: the Jungle Jumpers' Raceforest. Snowstorm opened the race by qualifying in last place. Despite their poor start, Snowstorm had their best race of the season, climbing to fifth by the end of the race. Snowy continued this momentum by qualifying third at the next Grand Prix at the Momotorway before dropping to eighth by the end of the race. Despite their recent success, Snowstorm failed to qualify for the third time at the Palette Park Grand Prix. The Snowballs could only manage a string of mid-pack finishes to end the season, finishing in 12th overall, a long way from last season's fourth. Despite this, Coach Blizzard was happy with the effort and a mid-table finish, especially after recent competitions.

The team returned to Hailfern to train hard in the Arctic Circuit, which Avalanche had expanded with extra training facilities. During this time, Blizzard interrupted the team's training to announce that the team would be competing in the Marble League 2021 Qualifiers due to the retirement of the Jawbreakers, and that their old rivals, the Gliding Glaciers, would also be competing. Snowstorm was sent to participate in the Marble League 2021 Practice Race, finishing sixth.[2]

Marble League 2021

The Snowballs returned in the Marble League 2021 Qualifiers, competing in Group A. Despite their recent training, the Snowballs once again had a poor performance, opening with an 11th place finish in the Wave. This was followed by a string of mid-table finishes to leave the Snowballs in tenth overall. The Snowballs had again not qualified for Marble League 2021.

The Snowballs returned to the Marble League Showdown 2021 and continued their poor performances, opening the competition with two last place finishes in the 5 Meter Sprint and Funnel Endurance. They then had a drastic turn around by winning gold in the 5 Meter Relay before slumping again with a ninth place finish in Block Pushing. Despite the gold medal, the team were only in 11th place overall at the halfway point.

The second half of the tournament also flip-flopped between great and poor results. The Snowballs had their third last place finish in the Triathlon before winning back-to-back medals, a gold and a silver in t and poor results. The Snowballs had their third last place finish in Diving and the t and poor results. The Snowballs had their third last place finish in the Sand Mogul Race respectively. The Snowballs finished their inconsistent season with an eight place finish in Marblocross. Despite winning the second-highest number of medals in the tournament and the highest number of golds, their poor performances in the rest of the competition could only take them to sixth overall.

Trivia

  • The Snowballs are the first winners of the Marble League Showdown.
    • Furthermore, they have the singular record of having won at least one of each type of medal, which they achieved in 2019.
  • In the Snowballs' announcement poster for Marbula One, Snowflake's childhood home (the acacia log cabin) makes an appearance in the background.
  • The Snowballs along with Mellow Yellow and the O'rangers are the only teams that are a solid color.
  • The Snowballs were often confused with the Pinkies due to their similar colors before the Pinkies changed their uniform to be more distinctive.
  • The Snowballs are one of four teams to never successfully qualify for a Marble League via the Qualifiers. The others are the Kobalts, Solar Flares, and Turtle Sliders.
