It was Pink Out and Senior Night. The girls wore pink jerseys and socks with a breast cancer symbol on them. For Senior Night, the senior girls were escorted out onto the court by their parents and the junior team members spoke about each of the girls. The seniors were also presented with gifts.

The underclass girls wait in line to present their gifts to the seniors. Currently, junior Karly McGuffin talks to senior Sofia Generi.

“It was sad knowing that it was the last time I will ever play volleyball on our home court. However, Senior Night was perfect. The support from the student section was amazing and I wouldn’t change anything. I couldn’t have asked for a better last home game,” said senior Filly, Jadyn Sigg.
