Arizona Daily Star photographers capture the athletes for reporter Caitlin Schmidt’s “Spring Stars” series, which features more than 30 high school sports standouts whose seasons were cut short because of the coronavirus. Athletes were nominated by their athletic directors and coaches, many of whom named more than just one. As a result, some schools will have multiple stars.
The photo gallery will be updated as features on the athletes are published in the Arizona Daily Star and tucson.com
