Archbishop Shaw’s Division I playoff game Friday night against John Curtis Christian has been cancelled.
Shaw head coach Tommy Connors said his football program had a “positive test for Covid-19 within the program.”
“We didn’t want to hurt the integrity of the playoffs,” said Connors. “We don’t want to cost someone a chance at a championship.”
“We have a number of students in quarantine,” said Connors.
The game was scheduled for Joe Yenni Stadium at 7 pm. 7th seeded John Curtis will now travel to #2 seed Scotlandville for next week’s Division I quarterfinals.
Connors said he could not provide an exact number of students in quarantine.
