News and Notes
IHSA puts Mooseheart on probation: The Illinois High School Association board on Monday placed Mooseheart on probation immediately and it will be ineligible to participate in the 2013 IHSA basketball state series, pending completion of the following to the satisfaction of executive director Dr. Marty Hickman.
1) Review and refinement of the admissions process to assure compliance with IHSA By-laws and Procedures. 2) Training and Education program for all Mooseheart coaches and administrators to assure compliance with IHSA By-laws, with particular focus on the unique structure of Mooseheart within the IHSA; 3.) Submission of a Compliance Plan.
The board, having considered all the evidence, finds 1) The investigation by associate executive director Kurt Gibson to be complete and appropriate and 2.) The students were taken advantage of by A-Hope Foundation and people related to that organization.
The board overturned the decision of the executive director and found Manguisto Deng, Makur Puou, Hakim Nyang and Wal Khat (the “students”) eligible to participate in interscholastic athletics at Mooseheart High School.
In making this ruling, the board noted the students had previously served a 365-day period of ineligibility.
The board further determined that any school accepting referrals of students from A-Hope Foundation or any other organization having as its purpose the placement of student-athletes in educational settings, will be presumptively ineligible. -- ihsa.org
