A Troy High School football player tested positive for COVID-19 Tuesday, October 13.
Troy City Schools have worked closely with the Miami County Public Health Department and per their order, the Troy varsity and junior varsity football teams will be quarantined for the appropriate amount of time.
Troy was scheduled to play at Edgewood Friday in a Division II regional playoff game. Due to the quarantine and to ensure the safety of our players, and our opponents, Troy will forfeit that game.
“Obviously the safety of our student-athletes will always come first,” Troy High School Athletic Director Dave Palmer said. “We will never put anything before their safety. That being said, obviously we are extremely disappointed for our football players, who have worked so hard to get to this point and were looking forward to their next playoff game.”
