SHS looks to ‘Shine the Light’ in honor of prep athletes

To pay a tribute to spring sport athletes who lost their season after the school year was cut short in light of the novel coronavirus pandemic, Sequim High School will turn on the stadium lights for 20 minutes beginning at 8:20 p.m. (20:20 military time) on Friday, April 17 at the SHS sports stadium on West Fir Street. “There will be no opportunity to gather as we still need to respect social distancing guidelines,” SHS athletic director Dave Ditlefsen said, “but feel free to take a drive by the stadium and honk your horns to show your support for all the athletes who stayed home to keep us all safe.”
