Shining Star Senior Night: North Central’s Atchley, Shadle Park’s Arbini

SPOKANE, Wash. – One of the toughest parts about spring sports being canceled because of the coronavirus is that so many high school students have spent their whole lives playing a sport.

They grew up throwing a baseball, softball, or competing as a team, and were looking forward to going out strong as seniors. Their identity is being challenged right now, so we want to remember all they’ve accomplished on Shining Star senior night.

Alexis Atchley (North Central): At the age of eight, Atchley started playing softball. She made varsity as a freshman at North Central for the slow and fast pitch teams. Her mother, Susie says she has enjoyed watching Alexis compete in high school and for her club team for the last ten years. She has an incredible work ethic and has made friendships with teammates that will make her successful far beyond high school.

Ames Arbini (Shadle Park): Arbini has worked tirelessly in the offseason at discus and throwing in track for the Highlanders with the goal of making regionals this season. He is described as someone who is nice to everyone he meets, and works with a smile on his face. He’s also involved in drama and yearbook at Shadle Park HS.
