As the 2019-2020 school year continues, as well as game season, the class of 2020 is looking back and reminiscing on their high school years. Senior captains of all teams are looking at their last game season as they prepare for the future and think back on everything being part of a team has taught them. 

Bryce Bailey- Top Ranking Tennis Player

Bailey began playing tennis at the age of ten and said that although it was never his intention to play the sport, he fell in love with it almost immediately. He said that being on the tennis team has even taught him valuable life lessons.

“Tennis has taught me to always have self belief and to respect everyone, but fear no one,” Bailey said. “It’s crucial to have confidence in your game and trust your capabilities because the player that never loses self belief will always emerge victoriously. Going forward, I hope to retain the same mental attitude I carry on the court with whatever career I decide to pursue in the future.”

Bailey said that even though it is his last season, he is still motivated to put in the work required to play at a high level.

“I know that with each passing match my experience on the team nears its end,” Bailey said. “I fight for every point like it’s the last.”

Looking back on his early years, Bailey said that being on the team helped him through high school and that he’s grateful for the experience that he’s had on the team.

“I’ve learned to balance my school work with practice, which helps with my work ethic,” Bailey said.”I am incredibly grateful that I was given the opportunity to play this sport and compete against tough opponents who have fueled my drive to constantly improve. I look forward to completing my tenure on the high school team and playing in several more upcoming tournaments in the near future.”

Ben Bell- Football Captain

Bell began playing football in the seventh grade and says even though his mom forced him to play the sport, he eventually grew to love it, as football is an outlet for him during hard times. 

“Whenever I was stressed out or did poorly on a test or had a rough day at home, football always let me forget about everything,” Bell said. “This team taught me how to deal with adversity.”

Bell said that knowing this is the last season is a sad and scary thought.

“I just try to live in the now,” Bell said, “I try not to think about what’s to come”

Brynn Carr- Celebrities Senior Lieutenant 

As a little girl, Carr was always dancing around the house, until her parents finally decided to put her in dance classes, since then she has not stopped been dancing. She said that being on the school dance team taught her the many lessons she plans on taking into her future.

“Dance has given me the most amazing community of friends who are so supportive and uplifting,” Carr said. “It has also taught me so many valuable lessons that I will carry with me through life. I have learned that if you want something, you have to work hard for it. I have also learned that working as a team is so important, and will take you that much further and make you that much more successful.”

On Aug. 30, Carr performed her last first dance at the football game against Vandegrift. She said the experience was surreal. 

“I never thought I would be the person facing all of the lasts,” Carr said. “It is a crazy feeling knowing that it is my last season. I definitely want to take in every moment with this team and give my all in every practice and performance, because I know that I will miss it so much when it’s over.”
