As fall coming to an end and winter is quickly approaching, fall sports are following behind with the closing of each of their individual seasons. On senior night, seniors from all sports and activities that take place in the fall are recognized including band, choir, football, cheerleading, volleyball, golf, soccer, and cross country.
“I felt honored to walk across the field for senior night because it shows the integrity that I, and other seniors, possess by sticking with sports and band for four years or more,” said band member Cody Bailey.
Each and every sport had a handful of seniors that made their way across the field on senior night, October 31.
“My favorite senior night memory would have to be standing on the field with Tori and Hannah, and all of the football players and cheerleaders singing the alma mater,” said cheerleader Jade Donohew “Knowing it would be the last time I sang it on our home field was hard, but I wouldn’t have wanted to do it with anyone else.”
Senior Night was definitely a very emotional night for all the seniors and their parents.
“I am definitely going to miss Ripley High School. I grew up here, and walking across the field for the last time was upsetting, but I’m glad I got to do it with my friends and family,” said football player Jacob (T-bone) Kay.
Best of luck to all the seniors graduating this spring, and may the rest of their lives bring great things. Each and every senior will be missed.
