Madison Koczersut – Mustangs Ahead
(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL)- It’s a very sad but exhilarating time when a sports season comes to an end, especially for seniors. It feels as if there is something missing and leaving a hole in your heart when you put up your cleats for the last time, score your last goal, make your last touchdown, and leave the court, field or pool for the last time.
The seniors on the LRHS volleyball helped their team go 5-0 in their district and 17-11 overall. The Lady Mustangs had a great year and are expecting to get even farther next season. The four seniors all played in the team’s last game, giving their all.
Even though it’s not my main sport, volleyball has been a part of my high school experience and I’m going to miss it a lot. The friendships I have made with the girls will be unforgettable and I will miss them as well. I plan on continuing both my academic and athletic career in college and majoring in sports medicine.
LRHS senior Callissa Foege felt the same.
“It was a very upsetting moment and I will miss playing the sport I love with my friends,” she said. “I plan on going to the University of Central Florida to study education or psychology. I wish the best of luck to the team next season. I know they can do it.”
LRHS senior Jordan Schmucker said, “I was very happy with how the season went, but I am very sad that it came to an end. I am going to miss the girls the most, I really loved playing with them the last four years. I am continuing my academic and athletic career at Mars Hill University and plan on getting my master’s in teaching.”
LRHS senior Bella Sellmer said, “It was a fun season and I’m going to miss the girls the most. I’m happy with how far we made it this season, it’s the farthest we have been in a while. I plan on going to college and getting my degree in biology.”
