TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) - The St. John’s Jesuit boys basketball team saw their season come to an end due to COVID-19 contact tracing protocol.

The team was forced to withdraw from the OHSAA Division I Tournament as a result.

In a statement released on the school’s website, the cancelation was due to contact tracing from the District Semifinal game, a 59-41 win over Anthony Wayne.

After that game, St. John’s defeated Findlay 41-26 on Friday. They were scheduled to take on Lima Senior in the Regional Final on Wednesday.

The SJJ football team faced a similar situation this fall, after a Findlay player tested positive for COVID, forcing the entire defense for the team to be put on a 14-day quarantine.
