MHS girls’ soccer ended in a draw 1-1 against rival Bedford. The night, which was also Senior Night, was filled with good memories, sending the seniors off with a bang.

Senior night is a night commemorating seniors on the team, celebrating their achievement in athletics with family and friends. By number of smiles and tears that night, it was clear that the varsity team created a bond that tied them together and helped them work with each other on and off the field.

Robert Anderson has coached these seniors for years and said he will miss them and their attitude towards the game.

“I’m definitely going to miss how positive the seniors are,” Anderson said. “Anything I ask, I can see all of them genuinely trying their best to do it. Also, just as a group, they’re all fun and create a positive environment for each other and me.”

Senior Mandy Heiserman reflected on her years on the team and said that she was glad she could experience this part of her life.

“Senior night was amazing; it was so much fun, and I’m so proud of the girls and how far well we played,” Heiserman said.

Also, this night is a way for the rest of the soccer team to say goodbye to senior players. Juniors now have to ready themselves for their last year on the team.

Junior Mattisyn Bodi is looking forward to learning more about soccer and getting to know the rest of the girls.

“I’m getting kind of sad about it because it will be my senior year but I’m very excited I think it’s going to be fun with all us girls bonding for my last year,” Bodi said.
