Henderson County High School's volleyball team had to forfeit the 2020 6th District Volleyball Tournament championship game against Webster County due to a positive COVID-19 case within someone close to the team.

According to HCHS Athletic Director Mark Andrews, "a person associated" with the volleyball team tested positive for COVID-19, causing both players and coaches to quarantine.

Andrews says that JV and Varsity players and coaches are quarantined until Sunday, Oct. 24. Freshmen players and the coach are quarantined until Tuesday, Oct. 27.

Although the volleyball team had to forfeit the 6th District Finals game, they'll still be eligible to participate in the 2nd Region Tournament beginning the week of Oct. 25.

Sure, yesterday's passing cold front and lingering rainfall made for a cooler-than average, fall-like day across the Tri-State - today on the other hand, was a bit more summer-like. The core of high pressure flowing in behind that cold front has now settled to our east and is actively pumping southerly winds, more heat and gulf humidity back into the Ohio valley. As a result, temperatures pushed back into the mid 80s for the majority of the region; the added humidity even made it feel a few degrees hotter as well. As for the rest of the evening, conditions will remain dry with temperatures gradually falling from 80° around dinnertime into the mid to low 70s by 10PM. The combination of added cloud cover overnight and those aforementioned southerly winds will help keep temperatures mild tonight - we'll only dip as low as 67° early Friday morning in the River City.
