Glen A. Wilson’s girl’s volleyball held their senior night and played their final home game of the season on Oct. 14.
This served as a great moment for the seniors on the team to shine and enjoy their last time playing for Wilson HS against the Walnut volleyball team. They lost the game with a score of 0-3.
When asked about how the players felt in preparations for senior night, team captain Imani Lee recalled a strong array of feelings.
“I was feeling a lot of mixed emotions,” Lee said. “I was happy that we had one more game, able to play with my friends one more time, but also sad because it was the last time we would ever play together. I was also nervous because we all knew Walnut was really good, but overall I just felt sad that everything is finally coming to an end.
Furthermore, the student body watching and cheering on were also very proud of the team’s hard work and were very sad to see it all come to an end. Serena Yang (12) speaks for those in attendance.
“It was heartwarming during the senior night ceremony to reflect on the volleyball seniors’ growth over the past years,” Yang said. “Watching their games over the past four years has been an experience, and I can confidently say that they have grown as athletes and leaders. They have left a legacy here at Wilson for future Wildcat volleyball players to follow.”
Much like his peers, Jeremiah Esguerra (12) felt a strong sense of euphoria at both the game and the celebration afterward.
“I think I will remember our celebrations the most,” Esguerra said. “They were extremely memorable to me as we were able to lead the crowd in chants and cheers as we watched the team play.”
The girls’ volleyball team will continue to train and work with its younger members in preparation for next year’s season.
