SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KCAU) – Sibley-Ocheyedan’s baseball season ended on July 10 after a player tested positive for COVID-19.

School officials said the junior varsity and varsity teams are currently under a 14-day quarantine.

The coaches will be in contact with players soon in regards to the uniform and equipment turn-in.

“We are glad that the boys were able to play a part of their season, and are extremely saddened the virus has taken away more of their season than it already had. The team represented us well on the field this summer, we are proud of the coaches and student-athletes, and we thank the parents and community for their support.”
