Saying goodbye on senior night

Before untying their cleats and stepping off the field for the last time, the girls Varsity Lacrosse team honors the seniors that have made this team remarkable. Prior to their game against Chippewa Valley on May 9, the five seniors were acknowledged for their responsibilities to the team. Announcers told the crowd how playing the sport has impacted each player during their time at South, and every senior had a special memory to share.

The last time South played Chippewa, they only won nine to six, but during senior night they were on fire. 13 of their 14 goals were assisted and as perfect as it sounds, every senior scored a goal, ending the game 14 to three. Goalie, Cate Hampton ‘24, has been playing lacrosse at South for four years, this is her first year having her dad as the head coach and second year playing with her sister. Crushing their opponents at senior night was the perfect memory to bring with her as she heads to college next year.

“We kicked their butts and everyone was really hype and we all played great,” Hampton said. “It was our best game of the season and we all played great.”

Hampton said she is going to miss playing with her sister and teammate Alyssa when she starts her new chapter at Auburn next year. She has cherished her time on the team over the years and will take what she has learned from the field to help her next year.

“Lacrosse season is really busy and I feel like it’s going to help me next year when I have to manage all my own time for everything,” Hampton said.

Not only has she gained intellectually, but also socially. Hampton said that the team has a great bond, the love she has for all of her teammates has made playing the sport a great experience.

“A lot of us were friends outside of lacrosse and then I think coming and playing lacrosse together made everyone closer, and there’s also been a lot of new relationships built,” Hampton said.
