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.

Tara Walsh is about to graduate from International Academy in Westland where she was one of the best gymnasts in the state.

Tara finished fifth in the country last year, and was hoping for a chance to win it all this time around.

Her last competition turned out to really be the last one, that is until she heads to Auburn University to compete as an NCAA D-1 gymnast next year.

Tara, 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.
