CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The St. John Paul II Centurions (4-4) were on the brink of school history this year. The school was set up to host a playoff game for the first time ever against Frassati Catholic (0-7). However, that game has been canceled after a player from Frassati tested positive for the coronavirus. 

In a letter sent out to parents, the Frassati Catholic Athletic Director confirmed with JPII officials that the player from Frassati had been in close contact with the rest of the team.

A sad day for the seniors at Frassati as their season is now over. The entire team will now have to self-quarantine for the next two weeks, according to the JPII officials.

The Centurions will now advance to the second round where they will face Fort Bend Christian in Sugar Land on Saturday, November 28.
