By on September 3, 2020

Among the many things disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic were the 2019-2020 senior year seasons of many of our local high school athletes. Now, as we wait for the start of the 2020-2021 high school athletic season, the Voice wanted to pay tribute those senior athletes who graced our playing fields. Over the next week, we will list the graduated 2019-2020 senior athletes at four area high schools – Cape Hatteras Secondary, Manteo, First Flight and Currituck.
