Senior Night at WCHS!

The boys basketball team celebrates Senior Night.

Senior Night

Senior Night for the boys’ basketball team was Tuesday, February 11th. This is typically the last home game of the season and a time to recognize the seniors and their hard work throughout the year. During the ceremony, the seniors are called onto the floor with their family and loved ones. They receive a gift bag with treats and goodies and their mother or mother figure receives a rose.

Seniors of 2020

There were seven seniors on the team this year: Dylan Blevins, Jared Courtney, Ashton Myles-DeVore, Riley Gardner, Marcus Givens, Will Smiley, and Anthony Tabor.

The Ceremony

About 10 minutes before warm-ups started, the seniors of this year waited in line for their name to be called. When the announcer called their name they would walk forward and break through the banner with their name on it. These banners were made by the cheerleaders who have cheered at every home basketball game. After the boys walk through the banner, they go to the middle of the court to receive gifts and to take pictures with their family.
