In February, SHS students decided to kick off the last semester of the school year by playing a strategic, campus-wide game called Assassins. The game has incited fun-filled paranoia across the school grounds, turning Raiders into rogue Assassins for a time.

“We saw how much fun other schools were having with it, so I asked some friends how they play and it just took off from there,” junior Caleb McDill said. “We thought it would be a lot of fun and a cool way to end the year. Some people are even asking to have a summer game or a bigger version at the start of school next year.”

The game creates a pretend student “hit list” and requires participants to “assassinate” assigned targets by shooting them with a water-gun before the deadline of two weeks. In order to participate, players had to pay $10 and this fee ultimately goes towards the sum of money that will be awarded to the final winner of the game.

“The game creates a lot of intensity within the school as well as outside,” senior Grayson Hawkins said. “You are constantly stressed about the location of your potential assassinator. The game ended fast for me when Caleb McDill killed me, but I still helped my partner, the late Maysa Mustafa. She eventually died, too.”

As less than ten players remain in the game, the pressure continues to increase. Students across the campus are eager to see who will be crowned as the winner.

“Lawson Ayo is pretty slick,” Mcdill said. “I thought Corey Crenshaw was good too, but he just isn’t ready to be an elite assassin yet apparently. Logan Welsh is the most sneaky, I’ve got my money on him.”
