Senior Night: Bittersweet Goodbyes

Honoring the last four years, while welcoming the future
Katelyn (Katie) Marshall

On October 6, Cabell Midland hosted its last home game of the 2023-2024 football season. The community banded together for Senior Night/ Youth Night. While elementary-age kids came to the castle to cheer with CMHS cheerleaders, the senior football players, dancers, band members, and cheerleaders got to enjoy their final Cabell Midland home game.

Before the game, senior athletes and band members got their name announced while escorted across the field by someone they love. Anabella Noel, a senior in the Marching Knights, said that at the beginning of the night she started to get “pretty emotional.” The realization set in for these seniors, as they knew their time at Midland is coming to an end.

For most seniors, the last home game was a very overwhelming and emotional night. For Chase Enochs (a senior football player), Senior Night “didn’t feel real.” That ordinary night in October was the last time they would be rooting for Cabell Midland, at the Castle, in the student section. A saddening thought, but also an exciting one.

Students were decked out in pink attire, to honor October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month. From t-shirts to face paint, the stands were full of pink.

Before you knew it, it was halftime. The Cabell Midland Knights were beating the Musselman Applemen by 21 points. During halftime, people either watched the halftime show or went and got food or spirit wear.

The amazing Marching Knights and Dancing Knights put on a fabulous “Phantom of the Opera” style show. Anyone could tell how much passion and dedication was put into the show, by watching it for the first time. Other than concessions, students bought slushies, lemonades, popcorn, and CMHS spirit wear.

Another win for Cabell Midland! The final score was 42-14.

Talking about this game sparked up some favorite memories of the past four years from Noel and Enochs. Noel’s favorite moment was “winning states last year after Mr. James got voted best dressed band director.” Enochs said his favorite moment was the first time he stepped on the field sophomore year, as a varsity player: “I thought it was crazy that around a thousand people showed up to watch a game that I got to play in.”

This night was a remarkable experience for all, but an unforgettable experience for seniors
