By Ray Hamill — The Humboldt-Del Norte League schools paid tribute to their student athletes who had their spring sports canceled this year by lighting up the night on Monday.

At 8:20 p.m. the schools around the league turned on their stadium lights in unison, showing support for the disappointed athletes, in particular the seniors.

All of this year’s high school spring sports — baseball, softball, track and field, boys golf and boys tennis — were canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Many of the schools in Washington and Oregon  also have paid tribute to their seniors in similar fashion.
