        Senior Recognition Night is fast approaching this year for the class of 2015. The seniors will be honored for their accomplishments in sports at the home football game Oct. 17 against Cheney. Senior volleyball player Leora Seiler said she would miss the sport after she graduated. Seiler has been playing volleyball for four years.

“I’m going to miss just being able to play the sport itself and pushing myself to get better,” Seiler said.

Senior football player Dustin Martin also talked about what he’d miss about the sport after graduating. Martin has been on the team for four years.                                    

“I’m going to miss just being out there with friends and the excitement of the games and Friday night lights,” said Martin.

Undefeated so far, the football team has 14 seniors and the Cheney game will be the first game in district play. The tennis team lost at regionals but two of the four seniors on the team are going to state. With their record at 22-10 for the season, volleyball is just a few weeks away from sub-state. Dance has performed at every home game except against  Trinity this year with two seniors and will be performing at the Cheney game. Cheer also has three seniors this year.   

“I think it is good that we are being honored at our last regular season game,” Martin said.

The seniors in football, volleyball, tennis, cheer and dance will start lining up with their parents at the south end of the field at 6:25 p.m. Their names will be announced as they walk along the field. Mel Hambelton Ford will also be arriving in a helicopter and delivering the game ball at 6:55. They will also be giving out a scholarship to one of the senior students.
