The Brookings-Harbor football team canceled the final two games of its season in the wake of several injuries and an extensive COVID-19 quarantine that has touched several of the school’s sports teams.

“Unfortunately, we had kids that had to quarantine due to families with COVID,” Brookings-Harbor coach Shaun Bavaro said. “Then injuries and a few kids that left for spring break.”

He said the Bruins started six freshmen and had three others who played a lot of minutes in their third game Friday, a 28-6 loss to St. Mary’s.

“I’m bummed for my seniors,” Bavaro said, before finding a silver lining.

“Our young kids played a ton this year,” he said. “And now we have tape to teach off of.”

After the season was delayed until winter, and with no playoff structure, Bavaro treated it like a spring practice session, especially since the Bruins installed a new offense.

“Great spring ball session for our young guys,” he said, adding that the team will take a couple of weeks off and then get back to work preparing for the fall.
