It was brilliant planning by Athletic Director, Jeff Townsend, to schedule Turf Fest on the same night as the Field Hockey Senior Day game, hoping the overflow Field Hockey Crowd might stick around for the football game. . .
It was a beautiful afternoon full of sunshine, smiles, a few tears, and a win! It's tough to see this group of 6 seniors go. They've been a lot of fun to watch, and are wonderful young ladies. Seniors were announced and then met by their parents. Coach Woodard and Coach Kinsella were joined by Senior Principal, Chris Lindquist, and Dr. Holley and they netted out well-deserved hugs. The players then all joined in to sing "Happy Birthday" to Grace. Doc Holley and I agreed, these kids today are just better than we were, especially when it comes to taking care of kids who might need some special attention. They "get it". Moments like that make you proud to spend your days around these young people.
