With the cancellation of the rest of the 2019-2020 school year last week, athletic programs from both Elsberry (left) and Silex (right) High Schools found a very unique way to honor their respective Seniors that would have participated in Baseball, Girls Soccer, Track and Field and Golf this Spring.

On Friday night at 8:20 p.m. (20:20 military time) the lights at each home field were turned on and players and coaches were given the opportunity to take the field one final time. At 8:41 p.m. those lights were turned off to close out the final day in Missouri for High School Sports.

Not only was this done at Elsberry and Silex, many schools across the state participated in honoring not only their Seniors, but all Seniors who lost their final season due to COVID-19.
