Ehlaina Hartman is among the hundreds of college athletes in Kansas awaiting word on when their team — specifically Emporia State women's basketball — will return to the court.

Having just graduated high school, Hartman is familiar with uncertainty and rapid change. One minute, her Spearville team is in the state basketball tournament, looking for a title. The next minute, they're processing that it's been canceled while eating at Olive Garden.  But the college freshman seems unflappable, showing off her shot and her optimism to the Kansas News Service.
