Itís hot and muggy. Whatís a college student to do?
At the University of South Floridaís St. Petersburg campus, you get wet.
Just in time for the sweaty part of the year, the campus recreation department launched Water Week, which on Tuesday consisted of a Battleship tournament. Six teams participated in the three-round event.
The game goes like this: Four players, with three buckets between them, plus one shield, get in a canoe in a pool and try to dump enough water into other playersí canoes to sink them. The last canoe floating wins.
