I have never seen a senior night so shameful as what I witnessed at Portage High School last night during the girls soccer game against Chesterton.

Our seniors got to play nine minutes during the first half before being taken out. The score was 0-0, and then the seniors were taken out besides one. The score quickly became 0-2 Chesterton.

This night was for our seniors, win or lose. Shameful that this is what they will be remembered for.

This is the first school I have ever seen that did not play the seniors the full game. I can honestly say that I am ashamed to be a Portage High School alum.
