If state health officials accept this evidence, Lamar could get some players back from quarantine. According KLMR 920, Lamar Athletic Director Chris Medina will need to put together video evidence showing other players did not have close contact with the infected athlete. This isn’t the first time this has happened this year within CHSAA. Both the Valor Christian football team & Briggsdale boys’ basketball team were in similar situations prior to their state championship games.
With the positive test, the Colorado Department of Health ruled Monday that the Lady Savages would not be able to play in the state tournament. Last Wednesday, a Lamar player tested positive for COVID-19, putting the whole team in quarantine.
But on Tuesday, reports surfaced that Lamar could be able to play after a Prowers County Commissioner meeting. But the Lady Savages may not be able to participate in the state tournament.
COVID-19 quarantines have already forced two teams to withdraw from postseason play this season in Pueblo West & Manitou Springs. Both teams had all of their players tested COVID-19, with all test coming back negative. In turn, both teams were allowed to participate in their state tournaments.
