Our Senior Salutes on @WXYZDetroit tonight: Shrine High School girls basketball seniors and Loyola High School's baseball team. pic.twitter.com/83hkHputBP
Shrine's girls basketball team had a group of seniors that had been together for years - dating back to fourth grade. Some of them won the Division 4 soccer state title.
The girls won their third straight district title, and while they were on their way to defend their regional title, their season was halted.
Girls, 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.
