The year 2020 has been long for everyone, no doubt about it. But for sports fans, April has felt like an eternity.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all the little things that bring us joy in life have been stripped away for the sake of our safety, and sports have been one of the biggest casualties. 

April is typically an action-packed month for sports, especially here in Iola. Right now, the high school sports season would be in full swing. Area athletes would be setting records on the track, hitting home runs behind the plate, serving aces on the hardcourt, or capturing hole-in-ones.
