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.

We continue our series with Hickory High girls’ lacrosse player Sarah Lockaby.

Lockaby was a defender for the Lady Tornadoes’ varsity lacrosse team all four years.

Lockaby competed in only four games during the shortened 2020 season.

She earned one caused turnover and two ground balls.

In the team’s final outing on March 10, it collected a win over Asheville, 17-4 and finished the season at 2-2 overall.
