Marquette girls basketball

Marquette, shown in action against Michigan City at the La Porte County Holiday Tournament on Dec. 30, is on pause until Jan. 21 due to a positive COVID-19 case on the team. The Blazers will miss five games during the stretch.

Marquette Catholic was getting ready to practice Thursday when coach Katie Collignon and the Blazers got the news that a positive COVID test on the team was shutting the program down for nearly two weeks.

“The girls got to see how my brain works in real time,” Collignon said. “To be blatantly honest, it stinks, but it’s one of those times where your basketball mind has to step back and think about not just the kids, but the families. Unfortunate as it is, we have to err on the side of the caution. Their health and safety is the most important thing. That’s the part that has to take over.”
