The East T-birds have been removed from the Matson Invitational.


Just one day after an East junior varsity coach tested positive for COVID, the varsity team was pulled off the field for the remainder of the season.


The JV coach who tested positive had been in a dugout with the East varsity team within the last few days. In addition, players were in the same vehicle with the coach. 


With an abundance of caution, the Alliance made the decision to remove the East team from the Matson Invitational.


The JV coach is the first positive case in two months of play for the 29-team league.
