We're celebrating athletes whose senior seasons have abruptly ended.

WXYZ Senior Salutes: We are asking for your senior year sports stories for our Brad Galli and Justin Rose to highlight on TV.

Flat Rock High School's boys and girls basketball teams were cruising to league titles and beyond when the MHSAA suspended the postseason.

The boys won back-to-back league titles for the first time since 1991-92 behind the leadership of seven seniors. They were set for their district championship when the postseason was postponed.

The girls won their district final over Flat Rock off a Sarah Kopp heads-up play with 4.2 seconds left. The Lady Rams were set to play three-time defending state champion Detroit Edison when the postseason halted.

Senior Rams, we salute you!

Kudos to ESPN's Scott Van Pelt for leading the way in calling for these stories. Our producer Megan Garagiola thought we could showcase some in metro Detroit to share on our platforms.
