LITTLE ROCK, AR (AAA) - North Little Rock High School notified the Arkansas Activities Association on Thursday that it was forfeiting all of its varsity football wins and varsity boys' basketball wins during the 2013-2014 school year in which an ineligible player participated.
The forfeit includes 10 wins from the 2013 football season, and at least 24 wins from what was considered a state championship basketball season of 26-2. North Little Rock also surrendered the 2014 Class 7A boys state basketball championship trophy to the AAA.
“We are grateful to North Little Rock High School for its integrity and honesty while dealing with a sensitive issue,” AAA executive director Lance Taylor said. The district self-reported what is considered a violation of AAA rules and took immediate action. The AAA agrees that a violation occurred.
