“Like any senior, I was excited for my last season and what it would bring.

“I was a little nervous since I was going to be the only senior on the team. With the announcement of the coronavirus and the Illinois High School Association ending the spring season, I was very upset as I was looking forward to the season.

“Before the announcement, team members had been keeping their hopes up through the challenges. We have even been doing online workouts to stay fit for a possible season. After the announcement was made, spring sports coaches have done everything in their power to make the best of the situation.

“I’m very grateful that Coach Kyle Boekeloo is looking into having games this summer and for the team members, who are still dedicated to play. I really appreciate the effort that the entire team has made so far.”
