“Last night’s game made me realize how close this season is to coming to an end. Starting with all of my classmates one last time helped me reminisce on all of the fun times I’ve had with my teammates both in junior high and high school basketball,” says senior, Sam Hardin. When asked what she’ll miss most about the sport, senior Kennedy Stevenson said, “My team. We spend so much time together over the course of the season and we grow extremely close to one another.” Senior Tyler Wagner said, “I’ll miss the relationships I’ve formed with my younger teammates and coaches the most.”
