When the school originally announced that the spring season would be suspended, I didn’t think much of it. I was annoyed that we would miss so much time, but I never imagined that my entire season would completely disappear.

After learning that the e-learning would continue for the rest of the school year I knew that it was only a matter of time before my season was canceled. Somehow that knowledge did not make hearing the news any less devastating.

My senior season was something I had been looking forward to for the past four years of my life. It was supposed to be my chance to say goodbye to my teammates, my coaches, and the sport in general.

This season became even more important to me last year when I injured my knee. I was unable to play the rest of the season and this season was my chance to return to my previous level of play and competition.

Now I am unable to play my senior season and it is difficult to have something that you have been looking forward to taken away. I understand that these precautions were necessary, but it is still frustrating to lose something I have been looking forward to for years.

All spring sports were canceled, not just girls soccer, and I am not the only one going through this. I am certainly not the only one feeling this way.

Olivia Buffo and Lynna Leimberer, both seniors at RB, were getting ready for their senior season.

Buffo was preparing for her fourth year on the badminton team.

“Oh man, I was pretty darn upset. It was predictable though, I knew it was coming. I just wish it hadn’t come so soon. Now, out of all the things about the school year that were canceled, the badminton season is what I’m most upset about,” Buffo said.

Leimberer, as the varsity goalie, was ramping up for her fourth season on the water polo team.

“I was heartbroken that the senior season was cut short. That Friday that the sports were canceled was supposed to be our first game. I worked so hard to be the varsity goalie and hoped to go to state,” Leimberer said. “Now I am still sad, but I understand the severity of the situation. I hope that everyone is safe and healthy.”
