On Feb. 14th the Fair Grove Boys Basketball team held “Senior Night” to honor the players and the Basketball Cheerleaders that will be graduating this year. On Feb. 15th the girls basketball team did the same. The night consisted of announcing the seniors and presenting them with gifts from their teammates. Seniors play a large role on teams for the game and for the other players. Senior leadership is essential for a team to run and all of seniors meant a lot to their respective teams, girls basketball head coach, Jenny Talbert, said, “They will leave big “leadership” shoes to fill. They have also been great role models and examples for our entire school. We will have to have some kids step up and learn from their leadership example.”

Seniors are also a large help to the coaching staff, boys basketball head coach, Tim Brown, added, “This years seniors have bought into what our coaches have asked them to do and have played their role well.  The most important thing that they have done is allowed others to be themselves and have supported them.

The players not only meant a lot to the teams on the court, they meant a lot to the other players, Cydney Fullerton (11) said, “I am going to miss them because they helped create a stronger bond between us all, and that made the team feel more like a family.”

The seniors will leave with many great memories of their own, Brian Carroll (12) said, “I’ll miss the high quality bus rides and all the 10 in 60’s I had to run.”

Lily Haumann (12) commented, “I will miss hanging out with the cheerleaders throughout summer camps and bonding.”

However, the seniors will also leave their impact on their team and their teammates, Taylor Bell (12) ended with, “Enjoy every moment you have with your team and to never take it for granted. While it is fun to score lots of points and win lots of games, the things you will remember the most are the good times you had with your basketball family.”

The boys team lost seniors Garret Potter and Brian Carroll, the girls team lost Taylor Bell and Jordan Coddington, and cheerleading lost Bailey Chandler and Lily Haumann.
