Senior Night 2011

by | Oct 7, 2011 | This Lefe Family

Tuesday evening was Senior Night/Parent Night/Breast Cancer Awareness Night at our home volleyball game.  Since Ali is a Senior this year, it was a very special night for her and a very special night for us. 

It seems like just a couple of months ago that Bill and I were walking her out on the gym floor as a Junior.  As we were walking her out this year, I truly thought to myself, “I can’t believe this is it.  Her last home volleyball game here in this gym.  After seven years of volleyball, this is coming to an end.”  I was saddened by those thoughts, yet extremely happy for Ali as she is moving on to new journeys in her life very soon.

Our coaches do a wonderful job of honoring their Seniors.  A special printed program for the evening, roses for the girls and for the moms, special recognition and a special time after the game with cookies and etc to celebrate the girls.  Coach Geary also made the girls feel special by playing each of them at least a little in the varsity game.  Also this year, Ali and two other Seniors sang the National Anthem before the game.  This mom couldn’t have been more proud of her Senior.

Ali’s Grandma Peg and her Godfather and uncle, my brother Pat, and his family came to celebrate the night with Ali and us.  It was wonderful to have them there, and Ali sure appreciated them coming.  It made her feel so special that some of her family comes to support her…especially on Senior night. 

We have a few more weeks of volleyball left…and all the games are on the road…Dubuque, Waterloo, Iowa City.  I’ll be soaking up as much of these weeks that are left that I can.  I am so proud of Ali for her hard work this year, working through her injuries, and being such a team player!  She is being such a great example to others.  Great job, Ali!
