Senior Night: The Last Dance


That school across the lake has been a sworn enemy to Lakeview for the past 14 years. From 2004 to 2017, Lakeview has lost to Rowlett by an average of 16.6 points. Unfortunately, Rowlett defeated Lakeview 24-7 for the fifteenth time during their game on November 2. Even though Lakeview didn’t get the win, Friday was a celebration where they honored their seniors. It was also the last home game for senior football players.

“I’ve had such great memories at Lakeview, and this one was just another memory in the books,” senior Isaiah Haro said. “We wanted to beat them so bad, but today was still a day of remembrance. I will always cherish the times I’ve had with my teammates, coaches and friends.”

Before the game, Lakeview recognized their senior football players, trainers, cheerleaders and Sweethearts and during halftime, their senior band and color guard members. Each senior had their named called while they walked out on the field, and some had their future plans after high school included in a slide on the scoreboard.

“It was a great moment being with my family and bandmates and this will be a moment I will always remember,” senior band member Manuel Ruiz said. “I’ve had many great times with this band and I can take those memories everywhere I go. I’m going to miss Lakeview very much.”
