Hill-Murray, shown here in a 2018 game, is a traditional power in Minnesota high school hockey.

A Washington County judge turned back a legal challenge by Hill-Murray boys' hockey players seeking to remain in the state tournament after learning of a positive COVID-19 test involving an opponent last Wednesday.

A few hours later, it was official: The defending Class 2A champions are done. The Pioneers won't play Wayzata at 11 a.m. Wednesday at Xcel Energy Center to open the Class 2A tournament.

The Minnesota State High School League issued a statement Tuesday evening saying it had been "notified by Hill-Murray High School that they will not be participating in tomorrow's quarterfinal game."
