Two high school games were canceled Friday — league games between Arbor View and Foothill and Chaparral and Sunrise Mountain — that could affect playoff chances and seeding.
Foothill will not play in the Thursday Night Lights football game because of positive COVID-19 tests in its program. Basic will host Cheyenne.
Cheyenne’s Kaleigha Plett is believed to be the first girl in Nevada high school football history to start at quarterback. She also played cornerback against Clark.
A Nevada Interscholastic Association spokesman said several high school games have been canceled for various reasons, including COVID concerns, brush fires and a shortage of players.
Former flag football player Kaleigha Plett is inheriting the starting quarterback role after COVID protocols sidelined two Cheyenne quarterbacks.
