The Palo Alto High School girls’ lacrosse team (11-4) will be celebrating their senior night before their game against Los Gatos High School (7-7), at 6:40 p.m. Friday at home.
Seniors will be presented to the crowd accompanied by their parents and siblings, with brief comments from their coach, Jamie Nesbitt.
The team is amped for the game against Los Gatos.
“We are very excited about the game on Friday,” junior Paige Bara said.
Every senior night, the team tries to get each senior to score and this year, with only six seniors as opposed to last year’s 12, it should be a capable task.
Bara expressed her sadness about losing the outgoing seniors.
“We have an amazing group of seniors that we all love so much,” Bara said. “We’re a very close group this year and it’s going to be very hard to see our seniors leave. It’s going to be really sad to see our seniors play their last game at home, but we will always be a Paly lacrosse family even when they graduate.”
Senior Olivia Peeps has mixed emotions about the game.
“Senior night is going to be really fun,” Peeps said. “I’m really looking forward to the game. I think it’s something everyone looks forward to. It’s also going to be very sentimental, especially for the girls who have been on varsity for four years, like Kristen [DeStefano]. So everyone should come out and watch us.”
The game will start at 7 p.m. following the ceremony honoring the seniors on Friday at the lacrosse field.
