Henderson County's football season came to an end Wednesday afternoon after a Colonel tested positive for COVID-19.

Henderson County was scheduled to host McCracken County on Friday with a trip to regional finals on the line. Unfortunately, that game has now been canceled.

Athletic Director Mark Andrews confirmed to 44News that the cancellation came out of an abundance of caution due to a player testing positive for the virus.

With the cancellation of the game, McCracken County will now advance to the next round of the KHSSA Tournament.

The Tri-State is about to witness a metric ton of change over the next 36 hours or so, but before we get to the meat of the forecast let's focus on the hearer and the now - after seeing an absolutely gorgeous start to the work week with afternoon highs nearing the 70° mark and little to no cloud cover, clear skies will linger through the evening ahead and into tomorrow morning as temperature gradually dwindle into the upper 30s and low 40s area-wide. We'll fall to 42° in Evansville setting the stage for yet another mild, albeit far less quiet Tuesday ahead.
