The top prep football program in Kentucky is temporarily closing its doors.
Louisville Trinity High School, the top team in the state and the No. 14 team in the nation in USA Today’s Super 25, has been put into quarantine after a player tested positive for COVID-19. Friday’s game against North Laurel has been canceled.
Athletic director Rob Saxton told the Courier-Journal the team plans to return to practice Nov. 12, the day before they are scheduled to open the 6A playoffs against Marshall County. The player who tested positive has not been in contact with the team since Wednesday.
“One of his friends who doesn’t play football at Trinity was positive for COVID, so the football player’s mother didn’t send him to school or football on Thursday,” Saxton said. “The mom got the test results back Sunday that the (football player) is positive. … (The football player) wasn’t around the team Thursday, Friday, Saturday or Sunday.”
Trinity defeated Bowling Green 42-7 Friday night. There is now only one school from Louisville scheduled to play in the final week of the regular season. DeSales is set to travel to Frankfort to play Western Hill in a district matchup.
