After the game, there were activities to honor the seniors on senior night. This year’s softball seniors were Emily Howard, Cambria Keiser, Brandi Kohel, Angelina Guthro, and Karla Serrano.

Each senior walked onto the field with their parents and received a dog tag, sign, and gift bag from their coaches and teammates. All of the girls parents also spoke and gave very heartwarming messages.

“Senior night was amazing and it was the perfect way to end out careers as Norsemen softball players,” said senior and captain Emily Howard.

Overall the night and game were both extremely successful and it was the best way for our softball girls to end their season at home.
