Senior Day — Amber Evans
Recognizing our senior athletes from the almost 2020 spring season
The pomp and circumstance of it all.
Graduations, proms, memories from the final days of high school — These are some of the things our seniors in Warren County School District are being forced to miss due to the coronavirus pandemic and subsequent closures.
Oh, they still have their futures ahead of them, but we’re not letting the senior athletes leave that quietly. Various school or team Facebook pages are giving them some just due, and businesses and organizations are making posters and signs.
In lieu of a real senior day, the Times Observer is recognizing each and every senior athlete with our own “Senior Day.”
“We will run them on the sports pages daily as they come in,” said Managing Editor Jon Sitler.
Our first senior is Amber Evans of the Youngsville track and field team:

Spring sport: Track and Field
Events: Long Jump, Triple Jump, 100m dash, 200m dash

What is your favorite thing about being involved in sports? Growing together as a team and the workouts
What will you miss most about high school sports? It’s hard to choose, but I think what I will miss most is being a Youngsville Eagle and proving everyone wrong for thinking poorly of our school
What has living through this crisis as a high school senior taught you? Life can pass in the blink of an eye and that’s why you have to give it all you have at every moment because you never know when that last moment is.
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be? Israel to see the old cities
Cats or dogs? Dogs
Favorite hobby? Painting
Favorite social media platform? Snapchat
If you could only have one artist/group on a repeat playlist, who would it be? KING AND COUNTRY
What is something that people would be surprised to know about you? I spend more time at my church than at my house
What is the best piece of advice that someone has given you? You have 10 seconds to take an opportunity before you start to talk yourself out of it, so just go now. — Bob Carrington
Plans after graduation: Attend Lifestyle Christianity University in Dallas, Texas, to learn how to have a better heart and more accurately follow the will of God. Hopefully go into ministry and travel on missions.
