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.

Western Michigan University discus thrower Riley Wilhelm was poised for her best season yet with the Broncos, but had that opportunity taken from her do to the COVID-19 outbreak.

She's taking the disappointment in stride, and gearing up for her next challenge, becoming a veterinarian!

Riley, 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.
