Sad Day for the Seniors

Senior Night...day ends in up and down emotions.

October 30, 2022

The seniors of the NUHS Varsity soccer team took the field for the senior night Saturday, Oct 8 with parents and teammates for the last home game. It was a bittersweet moment that had many feeling down and mournful. The game ended in a great way though which had many very happy and in good moods.

For many sports is just a game you play for fun and just to have a good time. This is exactly what the seniors this year did when they all started playing soccer many years ago. Now they are seniors and have all them asking themselves ”where did all the time go”. The seniors and most of the guys on Varsity this year have been playing together since they were little kids and have enjoyed every second of it.

The seniors walked on the track on Saturday accompanied by their parents and got to tell everyone what their plans for the future are. Both Leo Waloch and Nick Zins said, ”I loved every second of playing soccer with these guys, especially this year.” When asked what his favorite part of High School soccer was, ”I loved tryout week cause we all got to hang out for a whole week, play soccer together, and joke around,” Waloch said.

After the sadness was over the NUHS Eagles went on to beat Mankato Loyola 7-0. It was a great way for the varsity team and especially the seniors to go out with their last game at home this season. This season and the life of playing soccer will definitely be remembered by the seniors.

New Ulm went on to lose against the Worthington Trojans later that week 6-1 in a hard-fought battle. The New Ulm Eagles soccer team ended their season with a 7-9 overall record.
