MONTGOMERY – Huntsville High School have been fined for violating the AHSAA eligibility rules. The school self-reported the violation.
Huntsville played an ineligible student on its boys’ varsity basketball team in violation of the AHSAA’s Transfer Rule. As a result, Huntsville has forfeited 16 basketball victories, including Class 7A, Area 15 wins over Sparkman, Grissom and Gadsden City.
Accordingly, as restitution the student must sit out the same number of basketball contests in which he participated ineligibly once he becomes an eligible athlete.
