Stanfield Celebrates Seniors
The activities took place before each game.
Posted Monday February 16, 2009
STANFIELD - The Stanfield Tigers celebrated the senior players on the boys and girls
basketball teams and the one senior cheerleader.
Senior year is as much about endings as beginnings. Twelve long years of education come to a
conclusion with graduation in the spring. The entire senior year is studded with endings.
The last football game, the last prom, the last book returned to the library, the last
gathering before graduation, the last paper that needs turned in, and the last test.
The end of winter sports means the the high school student athlete's journey is
nearing its end. For many schools it's only a little over three months to graduation.
One more short sports season and the high school years are done. Gone. Living on memories
and friendships. And for some, a lucky few, college sports beckons.
Seven seniors were acknowledged during the pregame activities before the girls game.
There was one cheerleader, Yessnia Morales. There were six basketball players Nathalie Cook,
Tara Nichols, Jade Martinez, Erica Gehrke, Mikayla Baros, and Jessenia Carrillo.
