Seniors experienced a lot of lasts this school year—last first day, last morning practice, etc. Along with the lasts, they get a special night in a sport.

Senior nights are a night set off to honor the seniors on their season and school year. The senior nights are typically held on the last home game of the season. Coaches like Rick Keltner and Christin Nunnery usually hand the job off to someone else to plan and get the presents.

“Senior nights at our last home game are organized by our AD,” Keltner said.

Nunnery gives the responsibility to the juniors on the varsity team. They plan out what gifts they are going to get the seniors.

“A lot of the times, we give blankets, survival baskets for college, water bottles,” Nunnery said. “We also give picture of the team in a frame.”

For the boys’ basketball team, they have team awards, which usually include T-shirts or gift cards.

When the activities are taking place, the boys sit on the bench for basketball and in volleyball, Nunnery usually plans, the night and then lets the administration know what is going on for the night.

“Having the opportunity to take the seniors out of the game one at a time at the end of the senior night games,” Keltner said. “Those nights are my favorite.”

Nunnery’s favorite memory is her 2016 season with her group of eight seniors who were freshman her first year as head coach. She had a lot of memories with that class and many of them recalled them in their memories that night.

“We count on our seniors to be leaders on and off the court for our team,” Keltner said. “We also want our seniors to be involved in other school activities and to exhibit good leadership traits.”
