Senior Night is a time many students look forward to throughout their senior year.. As each senior athlete poured their hearts and dedication in to school sports, it must come to a close.
It’s very exciting for them to begin their new future, but sad to finish their highschool career, all the younger athletes they mentored through the sport and the bonds created with athletes, one hopes their are never lost.
“As a high school athlete this is something I always looked up too and felt like it would never be my time. As I played my last game it became surreal and emotional,” said senior Amanda Doley, Varsity Field Hockey player. Senior night for fall sports whether it be field hockey, volleyball or football were all very emotional.
Senior Erin Austin, Varsity Volleyball player, stated, “Senior night was a lot more emotional than I thought it would be; as you walk out onto the court for the last time you think of the past four years and all the memories you made with your team.”
As each of these teams played their last regular game of the season it finally hit them that this is it. All these players had to leave everything they had on the field and court as they left behind something that meant a great deal to them.
Some of these senior athletes played for four years, but the bond created with their teammates is just something so hard to leave behind. As they practiced day in and day out together, they watched as each of their teammates became part of something more and now it all comes to an end, but not without laughs, tears, and most importantly, memories.
