On May 4, the softball team played their senior night game against Red Land. Senior night, held every year for many sports, is a night to appreciate the seniors on their team.

The seniors are who the underclassmen look up to and go to for guidance, many of which will be missed. Tori Kroboth, a state high junior, said “I’m gonna miss Ava Babcock, and I’m just gonna miss all of them. But me and Ava have been playing travel for a while together since we were like 10 years old so I’ve been looking up to her for a long time.”

The softball underclassmen made a tunnel for the seniors to walk through and the seniors lined up one by one as their names were called. As seniors reflect on their high softball career, the atmosphere of the senior night came up.  Meredith Meengs, a softball senior said, “I think there is a different energy because it’s senior night and we’re coming off of a huge win yesterday.”

Sadly, they didn’t get to play for very long as the weather took a turn for the worse. It started raining and the teams were forced to stop and postpone the game. The game was rescheduled for May 16 and State High played hard and won the game 9-8 in extra innings.
