Executive committee denies MA’s appeal
The Mississippi Association of Independent Schools Executive Committee denied appeals from Marshall Academy and Copiah Academy concerning foreign exchange students playing basketball at the schools.
The Australians, two at MA and two at Copiah, had been granted a hardship January 7 by the MAIS Eligibility Committee. Then January 23 the MAIS Athletics and Activities Commission overturned that ruling, declaring the athletes ineligible.
A final appeal was made Wednesday of last week to the MAIS Executive Committee, which unanimously supported the decision made by the AAC.
The ruling requires that both Marshall and Copiah forfeit all games in which the international students played, with the exception of those between January 7-23, the period in which they had been granted a hardship.
Despite the forfeits, the Lady Patriots begin District 1-A Tournament competition this week at Marvell Academy in Arkansas as the number one seed, while the Patriots are the number two seed.
Coach Craig Dailey’s Marshall boys are seeking a fourth straight state championship, the previous three as a member of Class AA.
