Wylie Football suspended for two weeks

by | Oct 8, 2020 | Sports

Wylie High School has suspended all football activities for two weeks.

The announcement comes after a positive COVID-19 case within the football program and will shut down all play for 14 days, effective Oct. 5, 2020. The Pirates were scheduled to play Lakeview Centennial Oct. 9, and Naaman Forest Oct. 15.

Wylie ISD released a statement following the announcement.

“Following a positive COVID-19 case within the Wylie High School football program, the district has suspended all football-related activities for 14 days, effective today, October 5, 2020. There will be no practices or games for the freshman, JV or varsity teams. The health and safety of our students and staff is the primary focus and the district is following UIL protocols along with state and federal guidelines for coronavirus response. The district will notify all affected students and staff and will continue to monitor the situation. Make-up dates for the missed games have not been set yet. Due to privacy laws, no other information can be shared.”

This is coming off Wylie’s second loss of the season, 48-15 to Lewisville High School. While the district announced that they have not scheduled the next games, both teams have a bye week on Oct. 30 and Dec. 4.

We will continue to update this story as more information is provided.
