Schoonover disappointed senior year cut short

REHOBETH, Ala. (WTVY) - It's been over a week since the high school spring sports season was canceled in the state of Alabama. A tough blow for high school athletes especially those seniors looking to end their careers with a state title.

Rehobeth senior Stephanie Schoonover was hoping this was her year to bring home the "blue map", but now, she won't have a chance.

Schoonover and the Rebels came so close last season, falling in the class 5A state title game.

Now stuck at home, Schoonover is having to adjust to a new schedule.

Bullpen sessions in the backyard have replaced practices with her teammates. Schoonover said she never thought she'd see her high school career end this way, but she is doing everything she can to stay positive.

Your senior year is what you look forward to," said Schoonover. "It's your saddest year, but it's the year you make all your memories. You set a those goals and all the goals you accomplish your senior year. It was very heartbreaking not to be able to play my senior year with my teammates."

Schoonover is staying in playing shape while she's at home because her playing career isn't quite over. She'll head to Lexington after graduation to become a member of the Kentucky Wildcats softball team. A dream of hers she's been working towards for a long time
