It was a beautiful, crisp fall evening at Vashon High School last Wednesday evening where players celebrated senior night for the girls’ varsity soccer team after facing off against Annie Wright.

Vashon dominated the entire first half, wracking up seven goals quickly. Senior Sydnee Adams scored an impressive total of five during the game, assisted by junior Payton Venturi and sophomore Franki Brown, while Venturi and fellow junior Sienna Stromberg finished the sixth and seventh goals toward the end of the first half.

Subbing in for Vashon’s goalie, Tamsin Henry — who continues to heal from a concussion suffered earlier in the season — was sophomore Lila Perez and freshman Vera Moses. Wright’s offense was able to sneak one past in the second half with minutes left on the clock ending in a 7-1 victory for Vashon.

A halftime celebration honored senior players Jenna Harrold, Olivia London-Chambers, Hannah Spranger, Sydnee Adams, Mari Kanagy, Ella Wheeler, Jackie Bostock and their families.

Congratulations to all the seniors on years of dedicated play as Pirates!
