RIVER ROUGE, Mich. (WXYZ) — Michigan high school athletes remember the day things shut down.

The disruption that the Coronavirus caused to our daily lives reaches everyone to some degree, and high school athletes are a prime example of the struggle that comes with having the things we love taken away.

The River Rouge boys basketball team was considered a front-runner to win a state championship, only to see their season be canceled.

Notre Dame Prep competitive cheerleading was hoping they'd be able to build off a state runner-up showing from last year, but has had to wait 333 days to begin their practice.

The list goes on and on, but instead of focusing on what wasn't, now that the state has allowed them to get back to competition, these kids and coaches are only focused on what comes next.

Participants must wear face coverings at all times during competition, and spectators will be limited to two people per athlete.
