By Hub City Times staff
MARSHFIELD – Columbus Catholic High School has suspended their volleyball season for a two-week period.
“Due to COVID-19 concerns, Columbus Catholic Schools has suspended its high school volleyball season for two weeks, beginning Sept. 24. We will resume our season on Oct.7. Our mission is to provide high quality, faith based in-person education. We had to make this difficult decision to continue our mission,” a Columbus Catholic Schools release stated.
“I am heart-broken for our players and coaches. They did everything we asked and then some, taking every possible precaution,” said Columbus Athletic Director Joe Konieczny. “Their preparation was relentless and they were poised to have a very successful season.
“I take solace in knowing how good Coach Egle and her staff are at using athletics to influence young people. I am certain they will find a way to use this setback to make our student-athletes better people.
“Our school is praying for all schools, teams, and people affected by this virus. May every high school athlete be back doing what they love as soon as possible.”
The Dons began the season at 5-2 overall.
With the two-week suspension, the next game will be played at home on Oct. 8 against Spencer.
