Senior Night is always a special evening for our student-athletes and their families. It doesn't mean the season is over, but we take the time to make sure we show our appreciation for the commitment and sacrifice seniors and their families have made. For the parents it means they won't be standing on the sidelines in the rain or sitting on wooden bleachers for extended periods of time. That is a good thing, but it also means that their child is getting closer to leaving for college and there won't be a reason on weekday nights to gather with their friends and fellow parents to cheer on the Aardvarks. For the seniors it means that the playoffs are near and their is a greater sense of urgency to soak up the fun and friendship while maximizing the effort and preparation. Each victory means your high school career lasts a little longer and more importantly, you get to spend more time with your teammates.
Congratulations to our MS Programs! Wednesday was a busy day for our MS teams. Volleyball lost in 3 sets to Corbett MS in the semifinals. The MS Boys Green Soccer lost to Southwest Christian 1-0. The only goal was a penalty kick awarded to the other team in the early minutes. MS Boys Central controlled possession and had multiple opportunities, but loss to Catlin 1-0. And MS Girls soccer won 3-0. Ending on a loss is always tougher than finishing on a win. No one wants to pose for that team photo after losing while the winning team never wants to leave the field. But we are proud of all of our MS fall sports teams! They did an amazing job representing OES to the greater community. They demonstrated class and poise in victory and defeat all season long.
