The COVID-19 incidence rate in the Pennyrile region forced several Caldwell County school sports events to be canceled or postponed. One of the notable sports changes this week came with CCHS football.

Interim Superintendent Heath Cartwright canceled the team’s participation in a Friday game at Union County on Wednesday because of that school’s high incidence rate.

Administrators were able to schedule a game at Hopkinsville today at the Stadium of Champions. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.

The football team is scheduled to host Ballard Memorial in a Class 2A District 1 match-up at 7 p.m. on Sept. 25.

Boys’ soccer, girls’ soccer and volleyball each had competitions canceled or postponed last week. The girls’ soccer game against Muhlenberg County scheduled for this Monday has also been canceled.
