Although most, if not all, graduation commencement ceremonies have been completed, the O-N-E is still continuing its ‘Senior Focus’ series.

The student-athletes involved were given a ‘Senior Night’ type questionnaire to answer, and these are their responses.

If you want your athlete to be included in the series, contact us at

We continue our series with Bunker Hill women’s soccer player Kimberly Navarro.

Navarro was a defender and a team captain for the Lady Bears’ varsity soccer team in 2020, only competing in two games.
