The whole wanted to (and did) give their all for the seniors last game on our home field.”

The victory was bittersweet as the Bobcats celebrated Senior Night and will be saying goodbye to five seniors.

Elkins said they played a big role this season and it’s not easy to see them move on.

“These guys all contribute to the team in different areas of the field, so we’re going to miss all of them for what they brought to the team, but we have a great group of underclassmen ready to fill their shoes,” said Elkins.
