Beyond the bright lights and enthralled fans of their home court, Senior Night was a rite of passage for the graduating members of the girls basketball team. Jan. 28, the girls took on The Pine School and came up just short, losing 23-17. 

“As a teammate and captain, I’m honored to have been able to play,” communications senior and co-captain Se’Maj Griffin said. “Watching them play from the first game to the last game was insane. It’s extraordinary how much they’ve grown as a team. I’m happy regardless because we still saw positive improvement.”

Despite the outcome of the final game, the bond the team built throughout the three-month long season was one of their largest takeaways from the year. After the game, five underclassmen gave a speech for each of the five seniors, who were also given buckets filled with their favorite foods and candies.

“It was a complete surprise,” Griffin said. “We didn’t know that they were going to do a senior night. I thought it was put together, unique, creative, and cute. It made me feel really special.”
