JHHS joins in remembering senior spring sports athletes

The lights are on but you’re not home…… lyrics from Addicted to Love by Robert Palmer

On April 13th the lights were turned on at football stadiums all across the nation including at Caldwell-Peacock Stadium at Jonesboro-Hodge High School in recognition of the prep spring sports athletes that because of the Coronavirus outbreak were forced to miss their senior season.

Those being remembered for not being able to participate are athletes that competed in baseball and softball as well as boys and girls track but due to the schools across the nation being closed were not able to have their final sports season conducted.

“I hate that these young athletes weren’t able to finish their high school career like they normally would have gotten to,” said JHHS Athletic Director Terrance Blankenship. “We wanted to participate in this so that our athletes know that our hearts go out to them.”
