The traditional senior night began on Oct. 22 in the Family Life Center gym with coach Tom Guevara acknowledging the senior players on the girls' varsity volleyball team. The non-senior players decorated the gym with balloons and posters and gave the senior players gift baskets and heart-felt speeches.
"The seniors are always the most important part of any varsity team," Guevara said. "They provide the stability and leadership because they set the example to face challenges."

"I played volleyball in Portugal, but we don’t have senior night for any of the sports, so I didn't know what to expect," Cunha-Vaz said. "At first, we were all a little bit nervous playing because we had more people supporting us and we played against a hard team, but when we started playing, it felt like a normal game."
