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.

Howell swimmer Hunter Gubeno was already an all-state swimmer, but was hoping to make his final state meet a memorable one, with state records in mind.

Royal Oak softball pitcher Jacey Needham was poised for her best year yet, and is disappointed that she won't get a chance to carry her team deeper into the postseason.

Hunter and Jacey, 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.
