Graham has also scheduled a new home game against Everman on Friday at 7 p.m.
Petrolia has scheduled a new game at Roscoe on Oct. 1.
Henrietta also canceled their Thursday JV game due to COVID-19 precautions.
Crowell canceled their high school football game against Newcastle after 20 of their students were exposed to COVID-19. The students were exposed to the virus by a Munday ISD student at a Cross Country track meet on Monday.
Two Munday High School students tested positive for COVID-19 this week and the Knox County local health authority determined that a majority of the school’s students were in close contact with the cases.
This caused Munday to cancel their Friday night football games against Petrolia and move their games against Olney to the last week of the regular season, Nov. 2-6.
The Graham vs Hirschi game scheduled for Friday was canceled by Hirschi, according to Graham ISD.
Athletic Director Kenny Davidson confirmed there have been positive COVID-19 tests among the coaching staff at Graham ISD. No varsity players have tested positive at this time. The coaches who tested positive are quarantining for 14 days.
Davidson is in the process of trying to find another opponent for this Friday.
The Eastland vs Henrietta game scheduled for Friday was canceled at Henrietta ISD’s request out of an abundance of caution regarding COVID-19.
Eastland ISD says there may be an opportunity for their team to play this week and that they will notify everyone as soon as they find out.
The Knox City vs Bryson game was canceled after Knox City closed their campuses due to recent COVID-19 cases.
