Braves’ opener


GLADSTONE — The Gladstone football game between the Braves and Marquette scheduled for Friday has been cancelled.

Gladstone pulled out of the game because a player has tested positive for the coronavirus.

Gladstone Athletic Director David Lindbeck says his coaching staff is taking every precaution possible and notified Marquette on Monday.

It is unclear when the varsity team will resume practice and games.

The local health department is working closely with the team on contact tracing and other safety protocols, and Lindbeck is optimistic the game against Negaunee on Sept. 25 can happen as scheduled.

The Braves’ junior varsity squad is continuing with its schedule this week.
