We're celebrating students 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.

Eastern Michigan swimming & diving senior Sophia Tsafantakis was gearing up for qualifying for the NCAA championships, when the season abruptly ended. Sophia's mom told us her daughter carried a 3.96 GPA, garnering All-Academic honors all four years. She was also an All-American her senior year.

Sophia, 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.
