Covid Ends Football Season

The Centennial football team’s season ended Monday as a person within the program recently tested positive for COVID-19.


Neither the name of the individual nor the person’s status as a player or coach are available due to privacy laws.


The season was shortened to begin with and would have ended with this coming weekend’s game against Hillsboro.  The Eagles finished with a 1-1 record.


Athletic Director Terrance Schloth said,  “We were notified over the weekend that an individual associated with Centennial High School’s football program has tested positive for COVID 19 and that everyone that is part of that athletic cohort needs to quarantine at home for 14 days. We are working closely with the Multnomah County Health Department and Multnomah Education Service District – and we have canceled football practices and games until after April 10th – which basically ends the season now.”


Schloth said this does not affect other programs or classes at the school.


“Since Centennial High School’s first day for any in-person instruction (as part of the hybrid model) is Thursday, April 22nd, the only cohort impacted is football and all individuals (players and coaches) that are part of that group,” said Schloth.
