Senior goodbye: Ava Bleckley


Dear Carroll,

Thank you for everything that you have done for me. Thank you for introducing me to all of my friends, whom I will always keep in touch with. Thank you to all of the teachers who have taught me so much and have helped me get ready for next year for college. Thank you so much for all of the amazing memories that I have made at Carroll. They will forever be remembered and cherished all throughout my life.

The memories that I have made here will forever be engraved in my brain. One of my favorite memories at Carroll has to be winning the 2022 lacrosse state championship. This memory is so special to me because the team worked so hard for this accomplishment. The endless running at practice and hard work that my teammates and I put in had paid off at the end of the season, ending in a championship. Lacrosse season is also one of the best times that I have had at Carroll. Though other running was very tiring, I truly enjoyed getting on the line and hearing Coach Beers blow the whistle as we start to run Manchester Number 12. The time with my teammates on the bus was probably my favorite part of lacrosse because of the time that we spent together bonding. Another one of my favorite memories is soccer season. Though I was not as strong at soccer as I was in lacrosse, I stilled enjoyed playing. My favorite highlight of my senior soccer season was scoring against nationally ranked Westtown. This was one of my five goals in the season and I was so happy that I was able to score against such a great team. I loved soccer as well because of the warm ups. The team was always so focused and ready to play, even if we did know we were going to lose. It will be another memory that I made at Carroll that I cherish forever.

Throughout life I will always remember my time at Carroll because of these memories. Though it is sad leaving Carroll, I am super thankful for all of the memories and opportunities that Carroll has given to me.

Thank you,

Ava Bleckley
