FC basketball battles Fowler in final home game
After a long season filled with sweat and hard work, the winter sports regular season is at an end. The boys and girls varsity basketball teams will battle the Fowler Redcats for Senior Night in the FC gym, Feb. 10.
Seniors will be recognized before their games for their dedication and effort during the past seasons. The girls play at 6 p.m. and the boys will follow at 7:30 p.m.
For captain and four-year varsity player Trevor Trevino, it is important to close out their final home game with a successful game. He encourages everyone to come support the boys and girls last home match.
“It’s our last home game,” Trevino said. “It’s crazy how four years of varsity goes by and it comes down to Friday, our last home game. All I’m looking forward to is beating Fowler on Friday and having a good game.”
The girl’s varsity team will acknowledge two seniors while the boys have 12. Come out early to see the full ceremonies for both teams.
Robert Foshee is the girl’s varsity basketball coach. Foshee appreciates Senior Night because of the way it honors the dedication and examples the upperclassmen show.
“I love Senior Night,” Foshee said. “It’s honoring the athletes that have worked hard, especially those in senior year because it’s your last go-around and they leave legacies for the next group. Our seniors have done that and been great examples, so we get to honor them and their families for what they’ve done for the program.”
Freshman Kayla Vanderlinden feels thankful for the guidance and leadership of the upperclassmen.
“Senior night is important because you recognize the hard work and leadership of the seniors on our team,” Vanderlinden said. “The seniors on my team have helped me learn and grow physically and spiritually. They are great friends and good leaders.”
Boys varsity soccer competed in their senior night game, Feb. 7. They lost to Caruthers High school 3-1. Senior defender Julian Castro appreciated being recognized in front of everyone despite the unfortunate result.
“Senior night was fun,” Castro said. “Being announced and recognized with my friends for our hard work on soccer was a big deal. I enjoyed playing with my fellow classmates and friends. The game did not have the outcome we anticipated, but we did play hard. Everyone was giving 110%. As a senior, I appreciate the efforts of everyone.”
