Choctaw Central football team undergoing precautionary quarantine
MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - The Choctaw Central Warriors were preparing for a home game against Lake after having a bye last week. That plan has now changed as the 2A-4A matchup has been canceled.
The Warriors made the decision to cancel the matchup after a junior varsity player tested positive for COVID-19.
Misty Brescia, who serves as director of public information for the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians, said all football players and coaches were tested within 21 hours of discovering a player had tested positive for the virus. Brescia said they received results within 24 hours and had zero positive test results but have chosen to quarantine as a precaution.
Choctaw Central has played only one game so far this season, falling 29-13 to Nanih Waiya. Brescia said the team should hopefully be back in action the week of Sept. 24 when the Warriors travel to Richland.
