ODESSA, Texas (Big 2/Fox 24) – Tonight was supposed to be the home opener for the Odessa High School Bronchos.
However, Ector County ISD has announced the game has been canceled due to a positive Coronavirus case on the team. District officials say the contest with Monterey could be rescheduled at a later date.
“Our number one priority is always the health and safety of our student athletes,” ECISD Executive Director of Athletics Bruce McCrary said. “One positive case means others on the team are potentially exposed. We worked closely with local health authorities to determine the right course of action. Canceling tonight’s game is the right thing to do.”
ECISD said tickets purchased for the game will be accepted for OHS’s next home game.
