The Lewis-Palmer Boys Basketball team finished their last regular season game with senior night. Seniors from poms, cheer, and basketball were all recognized before the game. Senior night can be an emotional night for everyone, especially for the basketball seniors. This could be the last time they ever put on a basketball jersey. They finished out senior night with a win against The Rampart Rams.

“I’m going to miss high school, but I’m excited for the future,” Kohl Lander 12 said. “I had a great time playing, and loved the atmosphere. I don’t want to play basketball after high school, I want to focus on other things. My favorite moment was Senior Night, having a good game, and showing out. I’m looking forward to the playoffs, I’m hoping to go far. It will be sad to leave, but I have so many great memories.” 

Usually senior night means the last home game for the team. Good thing our Lewis-Palmer Basketball team is good and will finish the season on a winning record. Giving themselves a first round bye for playoffs.

“Leaving doesn’t feel like a huge deal yet, it just seems like a natural step in growing up,” Mason Huckstep 12 said. “I was really looking forward to going out and having fun with the other four seniors for one of the last times during the game. We are all pumped for playoffs, the regular season prepares us for our end goal, which is winning state.”

A lot of emotions go through a players head before any game, especially for Senior Night. A leadership role will have to be filled now that these seniors are leaving. This is considered the “last ride” with their high school team. 

“I will miss this team very much,” Connor Johnson 12 said. “We are very tight and consider each other family. This senior class really helped lead the team through adversity and helped us get to where we are now. Although we are leaving next year, I feel like the seniors have set a great example for the juniors and showed them what it is like to be leaders. I have 100% confidence in what our team will be able to achieve next year. “
