Editor’s note: Due to the COVID-19 concerns canceling the remainder of the high school sports spring seasons, the Wilkes Journal-Patriot reached out to coaches and athletic directors to have their senior spring sports athletes to fill out this form. We’ll be recognizing spring sports seniors throughout the rest of the school year and the summer.
