It seems like a long time ago now, but just a couple months ago when the Governor and the Illinois High School Athletic Association shut down schools and related athletic events, a cruel blow was dealt to our high school seniors, particularly the athletes in the spring sports.
No formal graduation ceremony for all seniors, but for the athletes that last chance to compete was gone. The baseball and softball diamonds were empty and silent. The soccer pitch was abandoned. The high school track sits unused, except for the recreational walkers and joggers.
The winter sports got their “last hurrah” and just when the spring sports were about to flip the switch, the lights went out for the then-foreseeable future. This tribute page is dedicated to our senior athletes.
We wish you all the best in your future endeavors.
