Centennial High School’s fall sports are coming to an end and it is the senior’s last year playing on the high school team. Joining a team is entering into a new type of family from coaches, and players, to students outside of the team. As the Men’s football season comes to an end, the coaching staff had a blast coaching the team and the seniors this year. Centennial’s football program held a Senior walk on Sept. 9, 2023. The worst part of the senior walk is for the coaching staff to know that the seniors would not be attending Centennial next year to lead the football team again.
Coach Meyers said, “The opening game this season and Thursday Night Lights were very energetic and insightful to the type of players we have.” Those two games and the outcome of the game were his favorite memories of this year’s season.
Football is not the only sports team losing seniors this year. Other sports such as tennis, men’s and women’s soccer, cross country, women’s golf, and volleyball are all in season and losing their seniors shortly. The Centennial women’s varsity volleyball team got a new coaching staff this year. This year’s varsity volleyball coach was Kristie Heaton. This is Coach Kristie first year coaching at Centennial.
It was a pleasure and an honor for her to coach the seniors. She thinks it is always fun to see an athlete you’ve coached go onto higher levels of play, but that it is always more rewarding to her to see an athlete she’s coached take what they have learned and apply it to their everyday lives. Coach Kristie said, “I will always remember their hard work, their dedication, their desire to improve, and their support of their teammates.” While saying goodbye to any senior leaving the school is hard for almost anyone who knows them, Centennial athletes will be missed by everyone. They inspire students and younger athletes all around the school and become so many different types of people after graduation.
