Following the awards, the seniors athletes took part in the Rose Ceremony, sponsored by the AHS Sports Boosters. Each student was given a rose. They presented a petal from the rose to a person who has influenced them and supported them during their time as an athlete. Many of the students presented their coaches with the rose petals.
The athletes sang the alma mater before heading to the rooms designated for each athletic team where they were presented with their team awards.
