Another Central Texas high school game canceled, another homecoming postponed
HUBBARD, Texas (KWTX) - Friday night’s football game between Chilton and Hubbard has been canceled after a Chilton varsity athlete tested positive for COVID-19.
The cancellation forced Hubbard to postpone all homecoming activities until next month.
The Chilton student was last in class on Wednesday and took part in football practice on Monday and Tuesday, the district said in a Facebook post.
“As a result, we are contact tracing and will require all individuals with whom the student might have had close contact to quarantine,” the post said.
Because of the positive test the district suspended all football activities and shifted all varsity football players to remote learning.
Hubbard ISD officials, meanwhile, postponed homecoming activities until Nov. 6 as a result of the cancellation.
Friday’s pep rally was also canceled.
