At the end of the day Thursday, freshman Kara Hafenstine was the only one left standing.
On October 11, the freshman class participated in a game of Assassin as a part of reading “The Most Dangerous Game” by Richard Connell in English 1.
The rules of the game were simple, each student received a target to hunt. Students could be eliminated using a clothes pin or by being tricked into holding a black spot.
2012: Jason Maciejewski
2013: Natalee Kates
2014: Sania Huda
2015: Erika Prue
2017: Raegan Feyh
2018: Kara Hafenstine
The game only lasted through lunch, when Kara Hafenstine assassinated Kyndal Maike. “I airdropped her a picture of the black dot of death which then killed her,” Hafenstine said.
A common theme that all students said they learned was don’t trust people when it comes to games like this. “I learned not to ever trust anybody because you will not be expecting them to pin you,” Aiden Boeckman.
Comments from the game:
“I learned how being patient helps with assassinating someone. My favorite memory was when Cade let me assassinate him. Kyndal eliminated me because I said don’t tag me instead of don’t pin me. My best elimination was when I hid behind a door then jumped out and got Justin. My assassinations were Justin then Cade.” — Eli McDaniel
“I learned that you always have to know your surroundings and that trust is key to friendships. My favorite memory was when Kyndal and Kara were trying to eliminate each other in the end. Ashlyn eliminated me between classes. My only assassination was Abby.” — Sarah Vanstory
“I learned not to ever trust anybody because you will not be expecting them to pin you then they will pull the pin out and pin you when you are least expecting it. My favorite memory of this game was throwing Hannah’s pin across the room when she pinned me. I did not have any eliminations.” — Aiden Boeckman
“I learned that a Cameron is a cheap son of a gun. I didn’t have time to make a memory, cause Cameron got me out by throwing his backpack at me.” — Gaige Smith
“I learned from assassin to never trust anyone and that our class doesn’t know how to keep their mouths shut. When (Mr. Praeger) said “don’t tell anyone who you have”, I should’ve listened. My favorite memory is when Justin got out first thing in the morning and he was salty the rest of the day. No one eliminated me because I’m the GOAT and no one can get me. My best elimination was my last one which was Kyndal. I airdropped her a picture of the black dot of death which then killed her. Assassinations: Richard, Jackson, Celia, and Kyndal.” — Champion Kara Hafenstine
