Shelbyville will not play its football game scheduled for Saturday afternoon against New Castle, according to SHS Athletic Director Jennifer DeMuth Hensley. The Golden Bears also canceled last week’s game against Delta.

SHS Principal Brent Baker put the following statement on Twitter last week regarding the Delta game:

“The SHS football game for (Friday) evening has been canceled due to COVID cases at SHS,” Baker said. “We don’t have the numbers to play the game. This is an unfortunate situation that we hope doesn’t occur again.”

Shelbyville beat Richmond in Week 2 to snap a 26-game losing streak. The Golden Bears (1-1) opened the season with a loss to Greensburg. If numbers allow, SHS will travel to Greenfield-Central in Week 5.
