Senior year is special time for all seniors, but athletic senior nights are when the community comes together to celebrate their student athletes’ achievements for the past four years. For both the boys and girls soccer teams Oct. 4 was their night under the spotlight.

Boys varsity tied 2-2 against the Watkins Mill Wolverines in extra time. The goals were scored by sophomore Christian Ortiz and senior Chris Rindov.

“We didn’t play exceptionally well today, but it was fun for all of my fellow seniors and I to be recognized for my accomplishments in the Rockville soccer program,” senior striker Sam Wells said. “The team and I are just looking forward to playing our best for the rest of the regular season and to focus on winning come playoff time.”

While the boys tied, the girls dominated Watkins Mill on their senior night, winning 10-1.  The game was highlighted by junior Sophia Rosa’s hat trick and a plethora of goals scored by senior Charlotte Davis, senior Emma Campbell and junior Aimee Sunier.

“We gelled really well as a team this game, and it was a great way to end my senior night,” Campbell said.

The impact that these seniors had on their teammates was evident and the seniors were rightfully celebrated because of the mentorship they provided.

“While it is sad to see the that the seniors are leaving this program, I’m still thankful for all of the lessons in life and in soccer they gave me,” junior Aimee Sunier said.

The boys play next on Oct. 16 at home against Poolesville at 5:30, while the girls play next on Oct. 15 at home against Wheaton at 7:15.
