Celebrating Our Senior Basketball Families

Yes, playing varsity basketball does come with a lot of glory, but sometimes it’s nice to share the glory with others, like the people who put in the real work involved in getting you to this point: your family! Senior Night was introduced to us last year by (then junior) Cate Hartnett. We celebrated senior night at the last girls' game in 2017 and had a lot of fun with it. 2018? Even better. We celebrated at the last boys' game of January and the first girls' game of February with great success. At halftime of each game, the seniors were introduced (sometimes taunted) by Mr. Connelly, and they were escorted onto the court by a variety of family members. They were all paparazzied into oblivion, and then the games were finished. Following the games, everyone in attendance was served cake and drinks by parent volunteers and we hung around talking about how great basketball is and how much the seniors will be missed next year! To top it all off, all of the seniors each received a silver-plated basketball keychain engraved with their name and number.

We will surely miss you: Cate, Mattie, Kelley, Delia, Laura, Zach, Anthony, Noah, Scott, Neel, and Preston!

Special thanks to all of the underclassmen parent volunteers who helped organize and implement both senior nights - from cubbies to flowers to cakes - it was a slam dunk!  Scroll down and enjoy the show...
