Maine South High School loses 9 football wins due to violations: IHSA – NBC Chicago

Mar 8, 2023

155 Maine South High School will be forced to forfeit nine football wins from its 2022 season after an investigation found the school’s program violated state rules, the Illinois High School Association announced Wednesday. According to the IHSA, the Maine South football program was sanctioned “for the use of ineligible players during the 2022 season.” The discovery came during an investigation between the association, the school and Maine Township High School District 207, in which the district and school said several players participated in the program “while not residing in the school’s attendance area during the 2022 season.” “The IHSA recently received credible information that Maine South football players who did not reside in the district participated in the team during the 2022 IHSA football season,” said the executive director of IHSA, Craig Anderson, in a statement. “District 207 and Maine South High School staff promptly conducted a meticulous internal investigation, in conjunction with IHSA, upon being made aware of these allegations. After careful review, they have self-declared violations of IHSA residency regulations by several student-athletes on its 2022 football roster.” The school is now forced to give up its wins over Barrington High School, Bolingbrook High School, Evanston High School, Glenbrook North High School, Glenbrook South High School, New Trier High School, Niles West High School, South Elgin High School and Stevenson High. School. The IHSA also said the Maine South football program will be on probation through the end of the 2023-24 school year. Any future violations could force them out of the state playoffs. “The IHSA Bylaws are the foundation of the Association and its ability to follow its mission to provide equitable participation,” read Anderson’s statement. “With over 800 member schools, we rely on our schools to adhere to these rules and to work with the IHSA in cases where violations may have occurred. I commend the staff at Maine Township High School District 207 and Maine South High School for acknowledging the seriousness of these allegations and their diligence in investigating and reporting these violations. I believe that District 207 has already begun to take appropriate action to prevent such issues from recurring and will assist them in every way possible ways in this process.
