Wapakoneta Avoids Football Forfeits
(10-21-16) - A list of 32 infractions and penalties were released this week by the OHSAA Board of Directors after being reviewed at its October board meeting on Thursday. One of the infractions listed was a violation by the Wapakoneta Varsity football team -
OHSAA Board Ruling
Wapakoneta High School had two student-athletes in varsity football violate Bylaw 4-4-4, Scholarship, and, in accordance with Bylaw 10-2-1, Forfeitures, the school must forfeit any victorious contests in which the ineligible students participated. However, no such forfeitures were required since the two contests were scrimmages and scrimmages do not carry any “won-lost” statistics.
Wapakoneta, who is currently 8-0 on the season, is scheduled to play St. Marys tonight in a game that possibly will decide the WBL champion. Since the players who violated the bylaw did not compete in any of those eight games, no forfeits were enforced by the board.
