AUSTINBURG TOWNSHIP —
The students seemed to enjoy the event even more than the hidden faculty members. The two hour break from classes provided not only a well needed reprieve from exams and assignments, but also a time for students to enjoy themselves in the gorgeous October weather.
J.B. Stackhouse, senior and captain of “Blue Steel,” the leading team in the games, said, “The intramural program provides a fun environment that motivates the students to think outside of the box and become actively involved in a wider range of activities. I think this adds one more way that students are able to learn life skills and critical thinking methods outside of the classroom that other schools cannot offer. The manhunt was a fun way of learning to overcome challenges as a team. ”
From the perspectives of both students and faculty, the Intramural Games have been a great success thus far. Every event further unifies the community, and injects excitement and competition into the atmosphere. Now, a few weeks past the manhunt, the teams are eager to face the next event.
