Senior Salute: “What I will miss most is the camaraderie between me, all my teammates and coaches. I will miss the family atmosphere within my team and my school. I will also miss all the teachers and students that have made these last four years a blast, and I’ve never felt more at home anywhere else. Also hitting bombs off Coach Julius in practice.”
