It is that time of year again. Time to celebrate our hard-working seniors and how dedicated they have been to their involvement of several different sports. The field hockey, soccer, cross country, and volleyball team all celebrated their seniors recently. The volleyball team has six seniors on their team; Bella Bowman, Alexis Triplett, Payton Frederick, Kayla Kaiser, Katie Hall, and Bailey Roszman. Senior Bella Bowman believes that during the past four years not only has the six of them improved as players but have learned to trust and be more comfortable around one another. She said, “My past three years have flown by.”
The senior soccer night was October 3rd where they competed against Mercy High School and defeated them 7-1. There are 10 seniors on the soccer team; Emma Schaefer, Katie Howard, Olivia Marino, Alyssa Campisano, Jessi Grunduski, Kennedy Cline, Lindsay Reynolds, Rachel Reisert, Kaitlyn Revell, and Morgan Fowler. Katie Howard ’18 said the highlight of their season was “Playing a good game against SHA. Even though we lost, we proved that we are a good team.” Addy Saultzman ’20 said that she will miss the seniors fun attitude and how welcoming they were.
The field hockey senior night was also a success. There are 11 seniors on the team; Izzy Porco, Kelsey Corso, Camryn Pichea, Hayley Weber, Natalie Timperman, Ashley Willbur, Chloe Bohn, Erica Cooper, Cassidy Sweeney, Meredith Boeckmann, and Kamryn Lococo. The field hockey team had a great season and celebrated all their hard work. Senior Kamryn Lococo said her favorite part was when the parents surprised them with a dance after. Senior Erica Cooper said, “It has been bittersweet, and I will really miss my teammates and coaches.”
Cross country’s senior night included a great, rainy race and loving words from cross country coach, Barry Haworth. The Assumption cross country team has a whopping 33 seniors. On their senior night, the team gathered in a circle with other Presentation and Christian Academy of Louisville seniors along with friends and family as the coaches talked about each of their players. It was a heartwarming time that the three schools got to experience together. They all commemorated their time on the team with pink roses and lots of hugs and emotion. Senior Lucy Wieland said, “At senior night, it felt good to be recognized after 4 years of hard work and getting to spend it with other seniors who I’ve gotten closer to through cross country.”
