Lowell High School Girl's Lacrosse Senior Night 2015, and a special tribute that LHS puts on for all graduating seniors across the school's sports programs.
This time out, Heather and four of her classmates took the spotlight as LHS squared off against Malden. A nice touch, too, is the delivery of roses to the senior members of the visiting Malden team who were in town for the showdown at Cawley Stadium.
A great group of young women and friends, led by their coach, Lowell Police Officer Kerry Bomil.

High sticks, all around
Arms locked, a united team
Sadly, one of the players lost a contact lens on the field before the game started. But as a team, they joined in to look for it.
Having found it, time for a hurrah!
Posters created by teammates adorned the walls of Cawley, some of the them depicting seminal moments in the senior's history, such as Heather's memorable zipline excusion.
All five of the seniors with their coach:
Heather, Callie O'Neil, Katy Coughlin, Taylor Ly, and Alyda Yim
Everyone in the stands was surprised by the unexpected appearance of the Hulk.

Finally, in a nice family touch, each of the players brings their families onto the field for half-time recognition
Callie is heading off to Northeastern's College of Engineering
Alyda is going to study kinesiology at UMass Amherst
Heather will be studying history History and Pre-Law at Stonehill College
Katy's also heading for the hills of UMass Amherst
Taylor will be heading to Westfield State University to study elementary education
Wrapping up a fine year with the team!
Notice, we didn't even talk about the outcome of the game, because it's all just gravy on a special night for five graduating seniors.
Congrats to all of them, and thanks for a great season!
Super proud, of course, of our daughter, Heather, who's grown into a beautiful, mature, fun-loving and free-spirited young woman ready to take on the world at Stonehill College. Buttons busting all around!
LHS Girls' Lacrosse 2015!
