ROCK SPRINGS — The first action of the year for the Rock Springs High School (RSHS) Lady Tigers basketball team will have to wait.

At least one student-athlete has tested positive for COVID-19, leading to the entire girls basketball team being quarantined.

As a result, the home opener against Cheyenne Central scheduled for Friday at 4 pm has been canceled. Saturday’s game against Cheyenne East has also been crossed off the schedule. RSHS girls junior varsity competition has also been canceled.
