OKEECHOBEE – Five Okeechobee High School volleyball seniors, including the Seminole Tribe’s Elle Thomas, were honored on the team’s senior night Oct. 5 before the Brahmans hosted Jensen Beach.

Each senior was introduced to the crowd and escorted by family members. Thomas was guided by her parents Laverne and Jason. Her younger sister Lexi, who also plays in the OHS program, presented flowers.

The other seniors honored were Kiersten Kennedy, Anja Koivunen, Morgan Tucker and Joy Whipple.

“I’m proud to be a four-year letterman and be able to play with my seniors all four years,” Thomas said through the public address announcer’s introduction.

Okeechobee is in the midst of an outstanding season. The Brahmans entered the match with a 10-2 record, but Jensen Beach emerged with a 3-0 win. Each set was close. The scores were 27-25, 25-21, 26-24.
