The Knights take the win during their Friday night lights homecoming game. Alarmingly the score was closer than expected as the Knights beat the Mavericks 26-7 at TDECU Stadium. The Episcopal community made sure to show their love with showing out in their nerd attire and having the whole stadium reserved for the Knights, talk about a home field advantage. Along with it being homecoming, it was also "Senior Knight." The varsity football team happily honored its 30 seniors.
Last week, the Southwest Preparatory Conference had ultimately decided to cancel spring sports for the remainder of the 2020 school year. It wasn't much of a shock to hear the news as major events are being cancelled left and right worldwide.
This all just doesn't feel real yet. As for me personally, Episcopal softball is still chasing the 4-peat. The training and grind during this quarantine wasn't meant for all of this to end just like that. So what now?
I am just a junior but I too have been impacted. Coming from an injury and being out a portion of the season we managed to have, it is one of the worst feelings not being able to play on the field again this year. My heart goes out to all of the seniors playing spring sports, especially the ones I have had the privilege to play on the field for my three years at Episcopal high school.
I got to interview Lexi Sagers, Julia Toups, two of our three seniors to ask them what senior year meant to them. Here are some of their thoughts about reflecting over a season that ended too soon and their years playing for Episcopal.
