This image of Liberty High School seniors, Jenna Massoth & Skylar Mendes, went viral in March as the social media world was moved by their display of friendship, sportsmanship, solidarity and courage captured during the final moments of their final high school race (and on day# 369 of distance learning).

The two “have trained together for four years,” shared parent, Deborah Mendes. “This is senior joy getting to compete one last time. They smiled at each other, grabbed hands, and crossed the finish line together.”
