What is the policy for “senior night” games for varsity sports? If we have players talented enough to make a varsity team at Shen they should be given the respect and opportunity to at least play a few minutes of their senior night game.

A.  ‘Senior Nights’ are one of the most misunderstood aspects of the entire athletic program.  Senior Nights are to acknowledge senior athletes for their commitment to being part of a “team” or “program”.  The idea that every senior should play on senior nights cannot be accomplished nor should it be an expectation.  While our coaches will try to find opportunities to put seniors in this game if possible, the goals for the team often outweigh that of the individual senior.
