“It’s nice to have that night at the end of four years of working so hard,” said senior Brendan Kerr.

Kerr also expressed gratitude for his fellow teammates and said, “I love them. They’re like brothers to me.”

The seniors have worked hard for many years now, so the team was glad to show its appreciation.  

“They have taught me a lot and have helped all of us adapt to high school soccer,” said sophomore player Jake Fisher.

In addition to the senior festivities, the HHS Boys Soccer Booster Club presented a check  with a donation to the Ben and Tim Day Fund. The team sold barbeque tickets at Ben and Tim Day, and then donated the proceeds back to the fund.

The team plans to continue to work hard and has a promising path to districts.
