With impacts of COVID-19 on the spring sports seasons, the Coastal Point would like to provide a place where we can honor the senior athletes from Indian River High School. Below is another set of responses from students who have answered our questionnaire, which is similar to the one provided by the IR athletic department. With the help of a senior student-athlete, we have been in contact with almost all IRHS senior spring athletes

Note: We would like to continue to showcase and recognize all of the graduating senior spring-sports student-athletes. We’ve continued to get a good response over the past week, but we know there are still more out there, including some IR grads competing for their colleges. If you know of an IR senior student-athlete that was set to play a spring sport this season, please contact sports reporter Jason Feather at jason.feather@coastalpoint.com.
