During the evening of April 21, high school stadiums around central Ohio lit up their lights and scoreboards to recognize the spring sport athletes who were not able to compete this season due to the coronarvirus shutdown. Pictured here is the scoreboard at the varsity softball diamond at Groveport Madison High School, which is illuminated with the jersey numbers of the Cruiser softball team’s senior players – Ally Maddy, Kenzie Maddy, Macie Sporleder, Milan Caldwell and Rachael Koller. “Words cannot express my feeling for the seniors,” said Groveport Madison softball coach Chris Downing. “OCC champs every year and as strong as any Cruiser team ever and could of went further this year. Only a global pandemic could stop them. They will make Groveport Madison proud as they venture through life.” In the background of the photo, the illuminated lights of Cruiser Stadium can also be seen in recognition of all Cruiser athletes and students.
