Monday, January 27th, was senior night for girls basketball. The senior basketball players include, Makenna Simpson, Zoey Jones, Gernizha Buchanan, Akiyah Taylor, and M’kiyla Barrett. The senior team managers are Morgan Simpson and Angelica Conner. The varsity game ended in a Tiger victory against Northside Christian with a score 51-25. They received a lot of support from students, fans, and family. Seniors are ready for their plans after high school and underclassmen are preparing to step up to the plate for next year.
Senior Makenna Simpson stated, “I am so excited for FAU and ready to move on to the next chapter of my life. Basketball treated me well and I’m very grateful for all my coaches and teammates who have pushed me to be the person I am today.”
It was an emotional night for seniors, as some may at not pursue basketball in college, but you can tell they were grateful for the time they were able to play the game. Their dedication and heart they had throughout the season was present in their wins and even their loses. The seniors will be missed and underclassmen are ready to work and prepare for next year.
