The girls basketball team was expected to kickoff its season tomorrow, however that game has now been cancelled.

The winter season is on pause until at least Dec. 14.

The decision coincides with the rise in coronavirus cases in Montgomery County, which was put on a Level 4 watch yesterday as part of the state’s health advisory system for COVID-19.

Trotwood has reported 9 COVID-19 cases to the state, since the Ohio Department of Health required districts to report their data on the virus.
