Every fall, students from our department compete against opponents from other local colleges in the annual Atlatl Battle, which has competitors throwing darts at targets with ancient spear throwers known as atlatls. Dozens of students regularly practice for the competition in the season leading up to the event, which often takes place on Family Weekend.

The atlatl team continues to offer a fun way for our students to bond, for faculty to interact with students outside of the classroom, and for our students to learn more about ancient forms of technology.
