Bailey Griffith’s senior year took a tailspin when she tore her anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) on Feb. 18 during Marmaton Valley’s senior night game against Chetopa.

The injury derailed her hopes to lead the Wildcats onto a playoff push, as well as her dreams for one last season on the track in the orange and black. But a month later, none of it really mattered. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has shuttered Kansas schools for the remainder of the school year, including the spring sports season.
