SHA's campus was filled with balloons, flowers, posters and lots of love for senior athletes this week as both the field hockey and volleyball teams celebrated their Senior Nights.
Volleyball kicked off the festivities on Tuesday, October 20, honoring Erin Corcoran '21 and Emma Karn '21. With cow bells clanging and Varsity parents cheering outside the gym, both girls were escorted inside by their families. The team greeted them each on the court with a bouquet of roses and more cheers.
Led by the seniors, SHA then got down to business, defeating Villa Joseph Marie in three sets: 25-13, 25-23 and 25-19. Erin finished the day with 13 digs, 7 kills, two aces, and 1 block. Emma chipped in with great defensive play, including 8 digs.
Field hockey followed up with a celebration of their own on Wednesday, October 21. Flowers, balloons, posters and cheering fans were on hand to recognize seniors Reghan Bailey '21, Zoe Bounds '21, Lily Flanagan '21, Mary Lauren Franz '21, Hailey Silvi '21, and Peyton Stull '21. Family members escorted them onto the field prior to the game, and the seniors then led their team to a victory over St. Basil's 4-0.
In fitting fashion, all goals were scored by seniors. Hailey tallied two, while Mary Lauren and Caroline each scored one.
Both teams also honored the seniors from their visiting opponents, introducing them and presenting them with flowers.
Congratulations SHA seniors!
