Two Schools Draw Fines, Probation
Lee High School of Huntsville and Clanton Middle School have been fined and placed on probation for one year by the AHSAA for using ineligible players on athletic teams. All violations were self-reported by the schools.
The probationary period for each school is a warning that other violations of the same nature could bring further sanctions against the school.
Lee High School was fined $250 in violation of the Transfer Rule by two volleyball players. The students are ineligible at Lee for one year or until the family makes a bona fide move into the Lee attendance zone. All contests in which the ineligible students played and the school won were forfeited to the opposing schools.
Under the Student Restitution Rule, the students must sit out the same number of contests they participated in while ineligible once they become eligible.
Clanton Middle School was fined $150 in violation of the Age Rule by a football player. All contests in which the ineligible student played and the school won were forfeited to the opposing schools.
Under the Student Restitution Rule, the student will be ineligible for the next regular season contest of the Chilton County High School team on which he now plays.
