Senior Night 2020
The Barton Lady Bears would like to honor our 3 seniors. Haylie Bartlett, Carrington Finley, and Amber Smith deserve praise and recognition for their hard work and achievements. Tonight April 24, 2020 would have been the last time that they would have played on this field. Due to circumstances beyond their control that was changed to March 3, 2020. Like many others, they have handled this situation with dignity and class. I cannot express how proud I am of these young ladies. Senior night would have gone something similar to this.
At this time, I would like to recognize our senior Lady Bear softball players.
