Playing a high school sport is no light commitment with practices daily, off season training, and games two to three nights a week. As the school year comes to a close, the spring sports seniors are recognized for their commitment and achievements during their time at R.J. Reynolds.

When asked what the biggest lesson they learned from playing a sport at RJR was, the following three seniors answered on behalf of baseball, women’s lacrosse and men’s lacrosse, respectively.

Chris Simon: “Hard work pays off in the end.”

Katie Dalrymple: “Understanding that success is a long term achievement and not something that happens instantly or effortlessly. All our hours in practice have helped us become the dynamic team that we are, but it’s taken a lot of hard work and dedication to reach this point.”

Aaron Weinberg: “I learned to always push yourself. Even when you think you can’t go any farther, there’s always more to give.”

After a rough start to the season, RJR topped Parkland 10-0 on senior “night” on April 14. (Back Row L to R: Chris Simon, Andrew Cox, Garrett Fisch, Nick Hill, Lloyd Gravely. Front Row L to R: Jaylen Ward, Victor Echeverria, Johnny Guarantano)
