Editor’s note: Due to the COVID-19 concerns cancelling the majority 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 remainder of the school year and the summer.
