On Wednesday, Athletic Department Chair Tim Ryan announced the 104th Annual NARP Hunt. The hunt, sponsored by Smith and Wesson, involves giving campus NARP’s six hours to hide before arming student athletes with camo Nike Dri-fit clothing, lacrosse helmets, and M&P15 hunting rifles.
Ryan gleefully proclaimed, “The NARP Hunt is an excellent way for student athletes to build camaraderie in a safe, supportive environment. The Hunt also allows student athletes to forge intense relationships with their NARP peers. Let me tell you, there is no bond more extreme than between predator and prey.”
Senior sportsman Declan Sims noted, “The Hunt is especially meaningful to us seniors. We’ve trained so hard to be where we are and I know we are going to give it 110%. I’m so grateful to all of my coaches and parents for supporting me through this process and I’m just hoping to take it one NARP at a time.”
Faculty prepared for the event by setting up a grandstand on the quad and betting on which first-year would be first to fall as frightened NARPS scampered for cover.
