This past week featured Heather's night in the spotlight, along with three of her fellow seniors at Lowell High School, as they were feted during a nice little tradition that LHS puts forth every year for its sports teams, Senior Night.
In this case, it was the Girls Field Hockey team, capably coached as it has been for many a moon, by Lisa Kattar.
Here's coach Kattar and the Senior girls doing their baddest of the bad poses.
From top left, there's Kiona Ashe, a four-year player, who's on defense. She's also been a member of the LHS baseketball and softball teams all four years, Kiona is part of the ROTC program and is a member of the Latin Lyceum.
After Coach Kattar, comes Heather, also a four-year member, and also on defense, she's also on the LHS lacrosse team, and is a member of the International Language Club, the Pep Club, and the National Honor Society. (Obviously, I could say lots more, but I'm sticking to the program bios!)
Bottom right is Taylor Ly, a forward on the team who also ran indoor track and cross-country for LHS. She, too, is on lacrosse, and is a member of the International Language Club and the National Honor Society.
And bottom left is Katy Coughlin, a four-year member of the team who plays both middle and defense. She has run indoor track, and is also on the lacrosse team. Katy is also a member of the LHS Pep Club, the Science Club, and the International Language Club.

Besides her biggest cheerleader (her mom!), Heather also had her aunt Annie and bro in attendance to make some noise in the stands
Annie added a touch of color with her sign
Acknowledging her adoring fans and getting ready to deliver an historic, inspirational speech that will be quoted for generations to come

The signs are there, and she's all smiles on the field at half-time
And of course, what kind of an event would it be without an obnoxious brother photo-bombing at every opportunity?

Also in the stands - Heather's bestie, Chloe Manousos, a powerhouse on the softball diamond, and friends with Heather since they both first skipped off to St. Margaret's pre-K those many years ago

Congratulations to all four of the seniors for leading the team during a difficult year, but still shining the smiles and keeping the team moving forward throughout! Nice job by LHS and Headmaster Brian Martin for putting the seniors in the spotlight for their night at Cawley!
Now get out there and win some games, girls!
