As local schools prepare for getting kids back in the classroom and the start of fall sports, schedules are rapidly changing due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Jackson Heights has announced the cancellation of its first two games due to a player testing positive for COVID-19.
MSC Sports reports the team is not on a 14-day quarantine and the Cobras have been forced to reschedule the first two games. Last week, Royal Valley had to move its first two games of the season, due to the same situation.
Jackson Heights was scheduled to play Oskaloosa to kick off the season, but that game has been tentatively rescheduled for Oct. 19. In week 2, the Cobras were scheduled to play Horton, but that game has not been rescheduled yet.
