At tomorrow night’s home game against Paulding, the Knights will celebrate their seniors. Four years of hard work have been put in for this last opportunity to leave it all on the field. The seniors being recognized are those on the football team, the cheerleaders, and the marching band. Each student will be escorted by their parents across the field before the game begins.

“I am excited for Senior Night, because I can show off the hard work I have put into the band for the past four years,” said Senior Chelsea Hancock. Most seniors have been involved in their activities since freshman year, some even started out in the earlier grades. This is a time to be recognized and also to celebrate the amount of time and effort each student has put in, before and after school.

“I am excited for Senior Night, because I get to spend it with the people I have had school with my whole life,” said senior Braxton Reno. Many friendships have been formed within these activities. Lifelong memories have been made on and off of the field. The students will get one last chance to do the things they enjoy together. Many memories will be made at tomorrow night’s game. The football team, the cheerleaders, and the band would appreciate all of the support they can get at the game.

The Marching Knights competed in their last competition of the marching season. They traveled to Swanton, Ohio, and competed against other schools in their class. The band scored a 202.5, which was their highest score this season. They are now shifting into concert band mode. Last year the concert band went to state and received and overall rating of II, the band is looking forward to another successful season.

Halloween has come and gone. The Knights celebrated the holiday by wearing costumes to school. Winners were chosen at lunch, by a judge panel that consisted of four of the teachers at Crestview. Categories were superhero, cutest, cutest couple, funniest, scariest, and best group. The winners received candy.
