We here at Local 3 acknowledge the heartbreak of the senior student-athletes who were unable to finish or play in their final sports seasons due to the coronavirus pandemic. So, throughout the next few months, we will be putting the spotlight on those athletes who have not only accomplished great things during their high school careers but also have big plans for the future. Today’s senior is Norway’s Mary Slagle.
