IHSA Disqualifies Lemont HS Volleyball Team From Playoffs

The Illinois High School Association is denying an emergency appeal from Lemont High School after its girls volleyball team was disqualified from the state playoffs. The decision was made to disqualify the team after it was discovered that Lemont had played one too many regular-season matches. The school’s Athletic Director released a statement saying the players are paying for his mistake, calling the situation an “inadvertent scheduling oversight.” The school offered other options as a punishment, but the IHSA remained firm on its ruling.
