IHSA ruling places Minooka High School on probation
MCHS self-reports eligibility status of student-athlete
MINOOKA – Minooka Community High School has been placed on probation by the Illinois High School Association (under the provisions of IHSA by-law 3.040 and its subsections) for a one-year period following a ruling regarding the eligibility status of a student-athlete, according to school officials Wednesday.
The probation ruling by the IHSA involves an Aug. 7, 2012, transfer of a student-athlete from a local, private high school to MCHS. After originally communicating to the student’s family that the student was eligible to participate in MCHS athletics, an internal investigation revealed that the student’s transfer from a private school violated an IHSA eligibility by-law due to it being the student’s second transfer between private and public schools.
Upon realizing the violation, MCHS self-reported the case to the IHSA, requested an official ruling and immediately required the student to cease athletic participation. IHSA investigated the case and ruled that the student was ineligible to participate in IHSA-sanctioned athletics or activities at MCHS for the 2012-13 school term.
MCHS Principal Mrs. Darcie Kubinski and the student’s family collaboratively attended the IHSA Board of Directors Meeting in Bloomington on Monday, Sept. 10, and appealed the IHSA’s decision in an effort to overturn it. The IHSA denied the appeal.
