Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the outcome of the 2020 spring sports’ season is looking bleak.

Given that, the O-N-E has decided to do focus on senior athletes for the following weeks.

The student-athletes involved were given a ‘Senior Night’ type questionnaire to answer and these are their responses. We will try to put this series out at least once a week.

First up in our ‘Senior Focus’ is Bunker Hill softball player Payton Bryant.
