Senior tag, a rite of passage for UAHS seniors, started April 3. Grouped into teams of four, seniors were given an opposing team name and one week to kill a certain number of members from that team. Someone can be eliminated by being killed by another member, failing to kill the required number of opponents or breaking the rules.

Recently, Principal Andrew Theado sent an email expressing concern with senior tag and reiterating dangers of the game. But many seniors, including Kate Wenzke, feel that as long as people are following the rules there is no reason that senior tag is dangerous.

“I think it’s important for people to make the call on how responsible you want to be, but as long as you follow the rules and stay safe there is no real threat to students,” Wenzke said.
