We wanted to inform our Pirate family that one of our student athletes has tested positive for COVID-19. The athlete is doing fine and stopped coming to summer activities more than one week ago when symptoms first appeared. The team involved did not have crossover with any other activities and precautionary measures have been taken with athletes that were in direct contact with this student. At this time, outdoor activities will proceed as planned and we will continue to use extreme precautions for indoor activities. If you have any questions or concerns please keep your Pirate student athlete at home and/or contact us with your concerns. I'd also like to commend our training staff and coaches who have been doing an excellent job keeping our athletes safe. Doug Key, Athletics & Activities Director
