Carroll High School athletic coordinator Juan Rodriguez has announced the Tigers' off-season conditioning program has been canceled through June 29 because of a possible coronavirus exposure.

Rodriguez made his announcement on Twitter late Wednesday night.

Rodriguez emphasized in the tweet there have been no confirmed cases among either staff or practice participants. But after hearing of unconfirmed reports of possible exposure, it led to the decision to shutter the program.

Students at other schools are adjusting to the new social distancing guidelines when they practice.

"It does worry me because there are so many people out here," said Miller track and field athlete Reagon Tatum. "But we do a very good job of keeping everyone spread out."

Miller football player Donovan Terrell has a simple plan for remaining safe.

"I just keep my distance and try not to make contact and bring my own waters," Miller said.

Meanwhile, the Veterans Memorial High School softball team announced this afternoon they are also canceling summer workouts until further notice due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic concerns.
