Ste. Genevieve Football Jamboree with Central, Valle Catholic, and St. Pius Canceled

(Ste. Genevieve) The first football event of the season in southeast Missouri has been canceled – albeit just a preseason scrimmage.

The football jamboree that was set to take place on August 21st at Ste. Genevieve High School that would have featured Ste. Gen, Central, Valle Catholic, and St. Pius has been canceled.

Ste. Genevieve Athletic Director Jeff Nix says all participating schools were a part of the decision that was solidified by MSHSAA’s latest press release.

Nix reiterated that the decision was not made based on COVID-19 case numbers in the surrounding areas, but rather with the hope that canceling the jamboree will help all teams involved to be healthy for week one of the regular season.

As of now, Ste. Genevieve is scheduled to begin the 2020 football season on August 28th when they host the Festus Tigers.

We’ll have coverage of that game online at on the MyMoInfo SportStream.
