COVID-19 cases cancel Alpena volleyball

ALPENA, Mich. — In a normal world, the Alpena Wildcats varsity volleyball team were supposed to play their final home game of the regular season on Wednesday against Petoskey. However, that didn’t turn out to be the case, due to “probable cases” of COVID-19 at Alpena High School.

At first, Alpena’s game against Petoskey was going to be rescheduled to Oct. 26. However, with the latest change, students and staff will transition to remote learning from Oct. 22-30. At this time, the Alpena varsity volleyball team is in quarantine. With the quarantine order ending on Oct. 30, this means the remainder of the regular season for Alpena volleyball is cancelled.

Following Oct. 30, the varsity volleyball team could possibly get at least two practices in before districts. They will take on Marquette on Nov. 2.

“It’s not going to be easy to try to comeback,” said head coach Melissa Doubek. “We’re going to make the best out of it. I’m really proud of my kids for staying positive and recognizing the situation. We will work our way through it the best we can.”
