The autumn breeze was crisp, the lights were on, and every super fan was in their usual spot. It was the last home football game of the season and for some, the last home game of the rest of their life.

 

Senior night is a big tradition in most schools, as it is at Timberlane. Every senior girl on the cheerleading team and every senior boy on the football team was called out into the middle of the field with their parents and was given a bouquet a flowers.

 

There are other traditions that go along with the football-cheerleading senior night as well. The cheerleaders wear the senior boys’ jerseys throughout the day and at the game that night. Brooke Delahunty, a senior cheerleader said this about her final night as an Owl’s cheerleader, “I had a great night. My teammates were awesome and they did such nice things for the seniors. I wouldn’t have wanted to spend my last home game any other way.”

 

The underclassmen, parents, and boosters  of the varsity teams also give gifts to and make signs, posters, and banners  for their devoted seniors who have worked hard throughout the years. Although it was cold October night on Friday, the Fighting Owls pulled out a giant win of 49-12 against the Spaulding Red Raiders. Senior football captain, Travis Hall, said “it was great to play one last time on my home field with some of my best friends. It’s a night I’ll never forget.”
