As October comes to an end, so do the fall sports seasons.
For the seniors, the end of this year’s seasons marks the end to their entire career. Though few of them plan to continue their careers at the college level.
Girl’s senior soccer players Taylor Sprenkle and Kylie Strong are two athletes who will continue playing beyond high school.
After all of the memories made with teammates through the many years, it was now coming to an end. Senior Taylor Sprenkle explained the feeling at senior night as being “bittersweet.”
“During the game I just kept telling myself that I needed to play this game like it was the last time I’d ever play soccer,” Sprenkle said about her emotions on the field.
Although it was not the last time she would play soccer, it was the last time she would play on Horn Field with the girls she spent the last four years with.
Sprenkles’ high school career may be over, but she has an exciting soccer future to look forward to as she will be committing to Millersville to be a part of their 2014 team. Sprenkle will be playing alongside her sister Tori Sprenkle, a 2013 Red Lion graduate.
Senior Kylie Strong also had many emotions during her senior night. She, too, was amazed at how quickly time passes.
“It was amazing how fast those three years went by. It’s finally your senior night and you’re the one walking as they announce you,” Strong said.
Strong will also be continuing her soccer career in college as she was offered a scholarship to play at Drexel next year, that of which she accepted.
The senior night game ended with a score of 0-0, tieing Central.
Despite not pulling out the win on Senior Night against the Panthers of Central York (0-0 tie), Strong reminisced at what happened that night and couldn’t help but to smile. “I’d take a tie over a loss to Central any day.”
