WILSONVILLE — The Oregon School Activities Association’s executive board denied Sisters High’s appeal of its decision to force the school to forfeit 13 girls basketball games this season — 11 of which were victories — Monday at the association’s fourth meeting of the school year.
The state’s governing body for high school athletics deemed a student-athlete at Sisters High ineligible after receiving improper “athletic or activities instruction" before she transferred to the school. The athlete in question has been given a hardship waiver by the Sky-Em League and is still eligible to play basketball this season.
The Outlaws girls basketball team was 13-3 before the forfeits were mandated. Their record now is 4-14 as they have won two games since the OSAA’s initial ruling.
Sisters High, which can still advance to the Class 4A girls play-in round with a top-three finish in the Sky-Em, hosts Sweet Home today.
