The most WONDERFUL time of the year was taken from us this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We were two weeks into quarantine when KSHSAA canceled all spring sports. I remember the day because I was talking with Jackson Vorbeck and Caeden Woods in the parking lot of Falcon Lakes right before it happened. It came a bit as a shock, but I was upset for all the opportunities the kids would lose. The first lost opportunity was for the seniors, Jackson Vorbeck and Dylan Reynolds. They lost the final season of their high school career and a big chance to make it to state again. Dylan would have gotten his first opportunity at a state tournament, but Jackson would have made his fourth straight appearance at state as part of the team.
