It's Great to be a Lancer

I have always loved cheering. There's just something about standing on that field every Friday night with flood lights shining down cheering on your team. As my last and final year of cheering for football is coming to an end, I've really tried to make it the best it can possibly be. And it has been! 

Last night was my cheer team's unofficial senior night. We had senior night a couple of weeks ago, and things didn't turn out. Long story short, last night was officially deemed Senior Night 2.0. 

We started out the night by going to California Pizza Kitchen (my favorite at the mall!) for dinner. Of course, dinner was delicious, especially the sweet tea! (They have the absolute BEST tea) The best part of dinner was the presents and cake! I had known how hard my mom and a few of my teammates were working this week, and it really showed!

One of the mom's made this cake! I especially loved that she put my monogram on it!
These shadow boxes were perfect!

We also got sashes and crowns! You probably can tell how girly I am, right? As the night went on, everything seemed to get better and better. When we got to the field, the lighting was perfect for pictures. I love taking candid shots with my best friend. They are so cute!

 The best part of the night had to be the game. Although it was at our home field, we were playing as the away team because it was the other team's homecoming game. This was the game of the year. We had never beaten the opposing team, and for once, we were expected to win. 

This was the first game when our student section, the Moat Mob, really came out. They did a white out, brought confetti canons and yelled the entire game. It was such an indescribable feeling with all the students cheering behind me. You could just feel the energy vibrating on the field. 

The whole game was neck and neck. After one team would score, the other would score as well. So stressful! With two minutes left in the 4th quarter, we got ahead by one touchdown. I've never heard so many Cambridge fans yell that loud. It was amazing! After holding the ball, we won! 49-42. It was an amazing game. Certainly one I will never forget. 


Lastly, I would like to thank my mom for everything she has done for me these past years. Yes, she has cared for me throughout my life, but as the team mom she could not be more amazing. Somehow she manages to keep everything in order. No matter what, she makes sure that everything will turn out. She made Senior Night everything I wanted it to be and more. Love you Mommy!!
