Athletes of Rockwell: Senior Night
by Alyssa Smith
The girls basketball team celebrated the seniors last week as they played APA Draper at home.
“Seniors: this is your last home game,” said Coach Troy Gifford. “So play your hearts out.”
This year’s team consisted of four seniors – Destiny Dipo, Megan Nelson, Kylee Berry, and Livia Chatwin – and two foreign exchange students – Sofie Larsen and Aom Kayhasai. Some of them have decided to take up basketball this year and have learned a lot in the process. Destiny Dipo has been playing high school basketball at Rockwell since 9th grade.
“Obviously the team changes every year,” Dipo said. “We just keep getting better and better.”
The team will miss having these seniors and exchange students next year.
“I wish I could come back and play next year,” said Aom Kayhasai, an exchange student from Thailand. “I love these girls so much.”
The girls on both JV and Varsity put everything into that game and came out with a win. The varsity score was 48-30.
