Few athletes in the Big Country Preps coverage area had loftier goals for the 2020 spring season than Brady senior Jack Marshall.
A three-event state track meet qualifier and two-time boys singles state champion on the tennis court, Marshall was hoping to end his high school athletic career with a little more gold in his already well-stocked trophy case.
Unfortunately for the future Abilene Christian University sprinter, those hopes were officially dashed on Friday, when the University Interscholastic League announced that all spring activities and state championships would be canceled as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak. But his response to that news — and the shutdown that preceded it — might surprise you given all he’s lost.
