Tigers News · SPRING SPORT SENIOR SPOTLIGHT: Olivia King


At the last home game, meet or match of every high school that has spring sports, the senior student-athletes are recognized in a version of “senior night.”  Unfortunately, the seniors at Bluffton High will not be getting a senior night this year. So instead of lining up at the finish line, home plate, court #1 or hole #1 tee, the Bluffton Athletic Department will spotlight our seniors who planned to play sports this spring season. 

These seniors have impacted not only their spring teams but also have contributed to other teams throughout their high school career. We have been blessed in many ways by these student-athletes and we would like to thank each of them for their hard work, commitment and dedication to their teams and to Bluffton High School.  So, from the bottom of my heart, from the coaches who hoped to coach you this year and from all Tiger fans, we would like to say THANK YOU for the legacy that you’re leaving. We wish you the very best in your future endeavors. Lastly, please remember: Once a Bluffton Tiger, Always a Bluffton Tiger.
