Aberdeen High boys’ basketball team has forfeited 11 of its 13 victories for using an ineligible player.
Ken Zorbach, Harford County’s Supervisor of Athletics, said Tuesday morning Aberdeen officials contacted his office Monday.
“The school did an investigation,” said Zorbach. “It was pretty cut and dry.”
Zorbach said the 11 schools Aberdeen defeated with the ineligible player, were contacted Monday afternoon as well as the director for the Class 3A East Region.
Aberdeen, which was in contention for a top-four seeding, now stands 2-15 with the forfeits.
The Eagles, who entered the latest Varsity Sports Network’s Top 20 poll at No. 20, were battling Edgewood and Patterson Mill for the UCBAC Chesapeake Division crown and a spot in the league finals next week.
