COVID exposure cancels Wenatchee’s first football game

After going through a cut short season last spring amid COVID concerns, the Wenatchee football team’s season has already taken a hit before starting this fall. Wenatchee athletic director Jim Beeson announced last night that the Panthers’ opener scheduled for Friday with Skyline has been canceled due to exposure to COVID.

Last night, in an email to staff, Beeson said: “We have had two cases of exposure to COVID with our football team and as a result our first week games have been canceled because our children were born. have not been able to train enough. We work with our school nurses and the Department of Health to make sure we follow DOH protocols. “

Football players are required to have 12 practices before playing in a match. Beeson said that even if the game had been moved to Saturday, it wouldn’t have allowed enough practice time.

Wenatchee’s first varsity game will now be against Mount Baker at home on Saturday, September 11 at 6 p.m. ET.
