SAN FRANCISCO (CBS / BCN) — At least three athletic events involving St. Ignatius College Preparatory teams have been postponed following the closure of the school because of an outbreak of the stomach flu, West Catholic Athletic League officials said.
A boys’ basketball game between St. Ignatius and Sacred Heart Cathedral Preparatory that was scheduled for Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. at Sacred Heart has been postponed until Monday, WCAL commissioner Ed Ravenscroft said.
The only game that was scheduled on the St. Ignatius campus Wednesday was a boys’ soccer game against Junipero Serra High. That game has been moved to Thursday at 3:15 p.m., said Kevin Donahue, the league’s sports information director.
A third game, a girls’ basketball game between St. Ignatius and St. Francis High School scheduled for Thursday in Mountain View, has also been put on hold, according to the school’s website.
The school’s girls’ soccer team was scheduled to play at Notre Dame High School-Belmont at 3:15 p.m. Wednesday but it was not clear whether that game was being postponed.
