Fall sports were in full swing on Friday, Aug. 30 at the annual Mill Valley Night Lights events. Volleyball, football, boys soccer and girls tennis all held scrimmages to kick off their seasons.

The events began at 3:10 p.m. with girls tennis, and volleyball and boys soccer following. Starting at 6:30 p.m., all of the elementary and middle school football and cheerleading teams began the scrimmages. Junior quarterback Ty Bruce liked seeing the future football player’s efforts.

“It’s awesome we got all the parents to come out and watch all the kids play and also watch the high school play,” Bruce said.

The stands were packed with families from all over the community during the football scrimmages. Bruce enjoyed seeing the team’s positive influence reflected among the young players.

“I think the kids enjoy getting to run through the tunnel with [all the players],” Bruce said. “It’s a great feeling [knowing] they enjoy it.”

Not only did Mill Valley Night Lights bring excitement to the players, it also brought a fun atmosphere for the students, according to junior Kylie Hay.

“[My favorite part is] just everyone being together again,” Hay said. “Seeing [my peers] in the student section is always fun.”

After attending Night Lights, Hay is now looking forward to seeing what the rest of the season brings.

“This and basketball season is fun because the student section is always really energetic,” Hay said. “There’s a lot of people, and it’s just something good to look forward to.”
