ST. LOUIS–The St. Mary’s High School football Dragons football team, which saw a 2020 playoff run stopped by a positive test for COVID-19, has run into another coronavirus hurdle early in the 2021 campaign.

The school announced Wednesday that it was forced to postpone a road trip to face Elder High School in Cincinnati Friday night.

Athletic Director Tony Dattoli tells FOX2 a coach who was vaccinated has tested positive, forcing the decision. The school is working with the St Louis Archdiocese and City of St Louis Health Department and following proper protocols to ensure student safety.

St. Mary’s was ranked number 1 in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch preseason rankings of the area’s “small school” football programs.

The team is scheduled to host Neuqua Valley (Naperville,IL) Friday September 10.
