LCA Football

LCA players run through the banner before its Week 1 Matchup with Providence Christian on Sept. 4 2020.

Loganville Christian Academy’s football game with Athens Academy scheduled for Friday night has been canceled due to two positive COVID-19 cases in LCA’s upper school. It’s game against Prince Avenue next week has also been canceled.

The two positive cases have also affected the clay targets and E-Sports teams. All three of the affected teams will suspend activities until Nov 6.

LCA sent out a press release Wednesday afternoon informing families that two 10th grade students in the upper school have tested positive for the virus between Monday and Tuesday. According to the press release, both positive cases are part of various LCA athletic teams, but it was not confirmed if either of the cases involved the football team directly.

Due to contact tracing, 26 other 10th grade students have been quarantined.

“Our goal is to keep our staff, families, and students as safe as possible during this time,” the school said in the release.

LCA’s was scheduled play Prince Avenue Nov. 6 for homecoming with the homecoming dance slated for the following evening. The game with Prince Avenue will not be made up, but homecoming will be rescheduled.
