What does missing out on your senior [sport] season mean to you?

“It’s just sad, this season with lacrosse was already going to be different because it was the first year we had an only Central girls lacrosse team. I was chosen as a captain, and I can’t experience playing one last time.”  

What was your reaction when MHSAA announced the spring sports season was canceled? 

“I was shocked when I heard the news, but I was not surprised because of all that was happening. It was more just when they would cancel rather than if they would.” 

What have sports meant to you throughout your life/high school career? 

“Getting to be a student-athlete has had so many benefits in my life. I was able to make lasting friendships and learned thousands of life lessons that I can translate to my everyday life. I had great coaches; my lacrosse Coach Joe coached me from when I was in fifth grade and off and on until junior year and saw me grow up and was a great role model for me.” 

What are you going to miss most about playing for FHC? 

“I will miss the friendships I have made through lacrosse and volleyball. I will miss the team dinners, the feeling when you score a goal, and when they announce your name over the speakers.” 

What is your proudest accomplishment as a Ranger? 

“Last year, the girls lacrosse team was ranked second in the state!” 

What would you say to underclassmen who still have time left playing for FHC?

Don’t take any game or practice for granted; in the moment, it’s easy to, but it goes by super fast, so take it all in.” 

Is there anything you want to say to the FHC community? 

“I have been a Ranger since kindergarten. Thank you FHC for giving me a place to learn and grow.”
