Senior Assassin Gives an Exciting Chance to Norwalk Seniors

Each year, Norwalk High School seniors direct and participate in a water gun battle where students are assigned a “target” to eliminate from the game in order to be the last one standing. 

Aidan Harder is a senior at Norwalk High School and one of the co-leaders for Senior Assassin in charge of bringing it back for this school year.

“Me and Grant Fletcher co-created the new account, and it has been going on since the start of April,” he said.

Harder said Senior Assassin is a way for the senior class to connect with each other before graduation.

“Senior Assassin is a way for us to communicate with each other and get to know each other outside of school,” he said. 

Harder also said the game helps participants meet new people in their grade.

“Senior Assassin is kind of a way to bring us together, and we get to talk to people that normally don’t get to talk to throughout the day and can interact with other people,” he said.

Adrian Bush, senior at Norwalk, said Senior Assassin is a stressful game.

“It’s a lot of nerves as you go through it because it can end at any time,” he said. “It’s just nerve-wracking because somebody can be out to get you.”

Bush said the game requires him to stay on the lookout.

“You can’t do much out,” he said. “Just not being able to go out and do things as freely as before.”

Bush said he has words that he would like to give to those who are still in the game.

“They’re going down,” he said. “That’s what I hope will happen because I will get the prize.”

Todd Sylvester is another senior at Norwalk participating in the game. Sylvester said the game can get very intense.

“The search for the target is very fun and engaging, as well as being hyped up to get it,” he said. “The adrenalin rush you get when you get somebody, just the whole pursuit of that, it’s really fun.”

Sylvester said being in the game has impacted his trust with his peers.

“I had developed a real sense of security by not trusting anyone else in the game,” he said. “It’s hard to predict what everybody else is going to do. It’s tough to trust people since everyone’s trying to win or trying to help their friends.”

Sylvester said the game requires the intensity of being accurate and stable.

“There’s definitely some anxiety,” he said. “You know when you’re trying to get somebody, because if you mess up, who’s to say you’ll get another.”

Sylvester said he has word for the seniors who were and still are in the game.

“I just think those who are involved, have done a great job with staying active, especially connecting with people,” he said.
