Washburn seniors to walk away by season end

Trevor Beurman

November 16, 2017

With the end of the fall sports season, Washburn athletics will see the loss of some very important seniors.They have created leadership and paths to success like no other team member. They harbor experiences and commit to the values that an Ichabod should hold dear.These seniors have memories of the losses and wins. They share times of rebuilding and resilience. They have seen the highlight plays, and the embarrassing flops. The one thing that makes them stand out among the rest is the true element of great performance.With a four year commitment, these players have truly taken the Washburn values and put them to work in four years of practice and performance. With a foundation that these seniors set, there really is no better way to make a successful program without them.The final seasons for these seniors will end, but the memories they shared as an Ichabod will never subside. Ichabod golfer Ivan Amarilla said that being an Ichabod has been a remarkable experience.“When I first came here [all the players were] very welcoming and I really enjoyed playing golf with these guys,” Amarilla said.Amarilla had plenty of memories as a Ichabod, but one really stood out.“One of my best memories was a tournament where we won beyond very harsh conditions,” Amarilla said. “It was a truly great moment.”Others like tennis player Blake Hunter also have memorable moments on the court. Namely with the Washburn organization as a whole.“One of my most memorable moments was the day we beat Wichita State last year," Hunter said. "Going in there, we were not expected to win at all, but we ended up doing it [for the] first time in 50 years.”As most of the fall athletic seasons begin to decline, it is important to remember how every sport at Washburn excelled forward to where they are today. One of the main factors that contributes to the success of Washburn are the footprints these seniors leave.“I just really felt the family atmosphere," Hunter said. "Really no matter what sport you are playing you know someone has your back."Washburn would not be the place it is without these seniors and it is imperative they get their respect for their outstanding efforts on the court, on the field and on the course. Thank you seniors, you have truly shown fellow teammates and fans alike what a true Ichabod is.
