From a fourth consecutive appearance at the state cross country meet, to a concussion that kept him from playing basketball this winter, and now a fast-spreading virus that has shut the doors on his tennis season — Elijah Fawson’s senior year at Iola High has been eventful, to say the least. 

“It definitely is not what I wanted at all,” Fawson said. “When I had my concussion, I stayed home in a dark room, and just rested. And now, I just stay home all day, but it is not as bad.”

Fawson’s fall sports season began by helping the Iola boys cross country team to another state appearance.
