RANDOLPH, NJ- The Randolph girls’ soccer team held an emotional “Senior Night” celebration to honor the girls who are soon to be graduating from the program.
One by one, the girls addressed their parents and siblings, and read aloud an “Open letter” expressing their thoughts and feelings on this special night.
Between bouts of laughter and fighting back tears, each spoke of the bonds they created over the years of games, practices and training, and thanked their families for the support they gave them through it all.
Funny stories and inside jokes made it a night to remember for all. Unfortunately, come game time, the girls fell to Par Hills 3-2.
The Lady Rams have had a good season with a record of 8-5-2 thus far, although compared to the success of the past few years they might not like the look of that record. However, with three games remaining on their regular season schedule, and the state tournament coming up, they have an opportunity before them to achieve what those teams did not.
The depth of talent and experience is there for the Lady Rams to make a run in the state tournament and grab that state title their predecessors did not capture. If they can do that, they certainly would go out strong and finish their careers on a high note.
The graduating seniors are: Rachel Fennel, Esther Wellman, Gillian McConnell, Rachel Kral, Victoria Mattson, Elise Michaels, Allegra Schiavone
