Lady Aves give goodbyes to Varisty golfers

Senior Night is an emotional event for all involved. For the seniors, it is bittersweet because it is their last home match. For teammates, it comes as a sudden realization that the seniors are leaving in a few short weeks.

“It’s bittersweet that this is my last home golf match of high school. I loved every minute of playing with my team,” senior Marissa Vilardo said.

The girls golf had their last home match on Sept. 24 at Glenview Golf Course. Glenview has served as Varsity’s home course for many years. JV plays instead at Meadowlinks which is a shorter course with more hazards.

Only two seniors are leaving this season, Hannah Brown and Vilardo. Brown plays as number two on the team and has been on Varsity for the past three years. Vilardo plays number four and received her opportunity to be on Varsity this year.

“This is my first senior night and I am so excited. Marissa and Hannah Brown will be missed next year. Honestly, I don’t know what we will do without their support. They have made my experience coming back to SHS that much better. We have a lot of fun things planned for tonight at our senior match. I’ve become so close to the seniors and it’s so sad to think they will be gone next year,” sophomore Sophie Kramer said.

So far the Lady Aves have been playing well. They placed second in the GMC tournament and are moving onto state.

“The rest of the golf season looks good. We should be able to get through sectionals and hopefully our team pulls it through for districts so we can get to state,” junior Anna Alsip said.
