Traditionally, Senior Night is the night where senior athletes are recognized for their talent and dedication to each of their teams. Typically, this senior oriented night is held on the last home football game of the season, but this year, the Homecoming game will be on the same night.
The Homecoming game was originally going to be on October 14, but had to be rescheduled due the opposing team disbanding their football team. The Senior Night game was then rescheduled to October 21.
Although the fact that these two special occasions will be on the same day, this does not affect the majority of students. It was disappointing for the senior athletes who were looking forward to senior night, but many have adjusted to it.
Senior cheerleader Alyson Aguerrebere said, “Originally I thought that having Senior Night on Homecoming would be really bad - because it kind of takes away from the senior cheerleaders and senior football players. But after I found out that it'll be before the game, I was okay with it. I mean it’s not ideal, but they did the best with what they had."Mason fans-- be sure to arrive early to the Homecoming/Senior Night game to support your senior athletes and the football team. The senior portion of the game will be before the game starts, and the usual Homecoming Court appearances will be during halftime, including performances by the cheerleading team and dance team.
