There will be no game at the Cudahy High School stadium Friday night. It’s been postponed.

The Cudahy Packers had just restarted their football season with their first spring game last Friday, but on Saturday, individuals connected to the team began experiencing symptoms of COVID-19.

“There were multiple individuals on the Cudahy varsity football team that tested positive early this week and over the past couple of days for COVID,” Greenfield Health Officer Darren Rausch said.

Neighbors and fans of the Cudahy team said they were anxious for the season to restart after being pushed back from fall by COVID-19.

“It’s a big-time step backward. And I’m disappointed. I’m not disappointed for me. I’m disappointed for the kids,” Cudahy High School football fan Jeff Koch said.

Cudahy’s Public Health officer told WISN 12 her office is working with school officials on isolation and quarantine procedures.

There is a ripple effect, impacting other local teams as well, particularly Greenfield High School, whose football team was Cudahy’s opponent last Friday.

“As a result of those multiple cases in Cudahy, there were multiple quarantines that need to be put in place for the Greenfield team,” Rausch said.

Like Cudahy, Greenfield has also postponed its game scheduled for Friday, impacting the teams those two schools were set to play, and Greenfield is suspending all football activity through Monday.

Meanwhile in Cudahy, the public health investigation into the COVID-19 cases will continue even as the high school football season is on hold.

The Greenfield school superintendent told WISN 12 News that there have been no positive cases reported at this point.

Some team members are quarantined, she said, out of an abundance of caution.
