GOSHEN, Ind. (WNDU) - The Goshen High School boys’ freshman basketball team is shutting down all basketball activities until Tuesday, Jan. 25, due to a COVID-19 outbreak within the program.

Goshen High School officials say several players had tested positive for COVID-19, and that there were more players being tested. Because of this, the freshman team will not take part in games or practices.

The team was supposed to play NorthWood on Thursday night, but the game had to be postponed. Other events may be made up later. That scheduling information will come from the GHS Athletic Department when decisions are made.
