Orange senior Dayne Watkins discusses an early end to the season

Updated: May 1, 2020

Dayne Watkins had plenty in store for his senior season for the Orange baseball team. In his third year on the varsity squad, Dayne had been a routine starter at first base and designated hitter for Orange teams that had made the state playoffs. Unfortunately, Dayne’s season ended prematurely, along with the rest of his teammates, because of the corona virus pandemic. On Monday night, Orange’s seniors gathered one final team for an impromptu senior night ceremony. Surrounded by family and friends, the lights stayed on at each of Orange’s athletic fields to honor senior baseball, softball, lacrosse, tennis and soccer seniors. As for Dayne, he plans to attend Durham Tech this fall (presumably) for a career in mechanics.
