It’s unclear who the ineligible players might have been but the Chicago Sun-Times sited a Chicago Public Schools spokesperson as saying the school is being investigated.
“It’s an embarrassment if they try and take this back,” Curie coach Mike Oliver told the Sun-Times. “It makes the city of Chicago and Young look like sore losers. [At 3 p.m.] they are asking about eligibility. But if they cancel the game they have to give back almost $60,000. So they let us play the game, get the money and then make us forfeit? That isn’t right.”
