Senior Soakers 2013: Elimination of the Week


Jackson Hull

We’re right in the heart of Senior Soakers 2013 and about 50 seniors have already been eliminated. With all these eliminations taking place, there are always certain ones that really draw the eyes of fellow seniors as being very creative or clever. Since the start of senior soakers there have been tons of notable eliminations that have made their way through the grapevine at Manual that we considered to be the best of the best. Unfortunately, we had to narrow it down to one story to write about for this weeks “Elimination of the Week”.

This elimination was bold, unexpected, and never done before.  Calvin Humphreys eliminated Mason Gersh in a way that many described as “mafia style” because of his blunt disregard for anything else except for his target. He had a mission and he was going to carry it out no matter what.

Humphreys found out (from a source who wished to remain anonymous) that Gersh was out at a restaurant with his friends. As soon as Humphreys discovered this he rushed over, water gun in hand, to the restaurant that Gersh was eating at. Once he got to the restaurant he spotted his target through the window. He walked through the doors and prepared to soak his target. He was stopped by the waiter at the restaurant because water guns weren’t allowed in the restaurant. “Calvin just didn’t say anything, walked right past her, shot Mason and walked back out. It was so ballsy,” said Patrick Frentz (12).

Gersh was shocked to say the least. “I didn’t see that coming at all, I mean you don’t soak a man while he’s dining,” said Gersh. For next weeks “Elimination of the Week”, stay tuned to
