With hopes of starting a tradition honoring the everyday influencers that student-athletes rely on to lead them to a bright future, the Sussex Academy girls’ lacrosse team held Teacher Appreciation Night prior to its game against Smyrna May 3.

Sussex Academy teachers Christopher Novak, Megan Stevens, Meaghan Tyndall, Jenni Couch, Ashley Lehman, Rich Lichtenwalner, Sunny Leeper and Stephanie Sherman took part in player introductions, getting to run through the player tunnel and out to midfield before standing in line for the national anthem.

The players wanted to acknowledge the teachers not just for their efforts in the classroom, but also the positive influence they have had on their lives and the lasting impact it will have. This was the first time the girls’ lacrosse team held a night to honor teachers; the wrestling team did the same thing before its match against Delmar Feb. 9.
