Senior Josh Ortega had a tough decision to make. He could either participate in North Hardin’s graduation Saturday, or he could help the Trojans compete for the Class 3-A state title.
Walking across the stage to receive their diploma is something high school seniors look forward to from the first day of school in August, but Ortega couldn’t pass up the possibility of becoming a state champion at the University of Louisville’s Owsley Frazier Cardinal Park.
“I’m missing graduation for this. We better win,” he said.
