Bayside Academy has been fined, placed on probation for one year and ordered to forfeit its first-round Class 3A, Area 1 boys’ basketball tournament win over Cottage Hill Christian for violating AHSAA eligibility rules. The school self-reported the violation.
Bayside played an ineligible student in violation of the AHSAA Transfer Rule, specifically related to a bona fide move. The school must forfeit all contests its team won in which the student had participated. Cottage Hill will now advance to the Area 1 finals versus Excel. Bayside Academy’s season has ended.
In addition, Bayside must forfeit varsity wins over Gulf Shores and Pensacola Christian. Furthermore, the school reported playing an ineligible student in two junior varsity games.
The probationary period is a warning that other violations of this nature could bring further sanctions against the school.
