Danville-New London softball game cancelled

NEW LONDON — The Danville vs. New London softball game, scheduled for Monday night in New London was cancelled over concerns raised by Danville parents and players.

Last week, the New London softball team had a COVID-19 scare when a teenager who had been in close contact with one of their athletes tested positive for the disease. The test for that softball player came back negative on Friday, and New London has resumed play while she and any other players who were in close contact go on quarantine, but the Danville softball team says it wants to be extra careful with the regional tournament just around the corner.

Both the New London and Danville softball teams will move on with their seasons but the game between the two teams will not be made up.
