I heard through the grapevine that Madison East's super freshman Marquis Mason will probably be suspended for at least a few games and possibly the rest of the season by the WIAA for playing in an adult men's league during the school year. Hopefully it's ok that I'm posting this, I'm not sure if I'm violating any site rules by posting this.

During try outs or sometime around there Marquis played in a rec league game in Sun Prairie. A person from that league saw Marquis on the front page of the paper the other day and called Sun Prairie's head coach who then called Coach Cleveland who had no choice but to declare him ineligible.

Any coincidence that East played Sun Prairie today??

If it's a rumor, they may just delete this. Wissports.net doesn't exactly like rumors being posted.

But, it's not that bad, so they may just keep it.

Until exactly what happened is released, speculation on the subject will not be allowed. For now all that is known to the public is that East had to forfiet the game due to an ineligible player.

I don't necessarily doubt the authenticity of the rule, but I don't get WHY it's a rule. Can someone enlighten me as to why it?s ?wrong? to play in a recreational league? How is it any different in benefiting a young kid than playing in a pick-up game down at the Y or something?

from wiaa rulebook ------------------------------
A . It is the philosophy of this Association that a student owes loyalty and allegiance to the school and team of which he/she is a member during the season of a given sport. A student becomes ineligible in a sport for the remainder of the season for competing in nonschool game, meet, or contest in the same sport during the season of practice and competition established by the school. The penalty may be reduced upon request of a school on the basis of documented extenuating circumstances. 1 ) Nonschool games, meets, or contests shall be interpreted to include (a) all games, meets, or contests outside the control of the school and (b) any games, meets, or contests within a school (other than off i c i a l interscholastic athletic program) involving another school or a nonschool org a n i z a t i o n .
-------------------------------

hopefully they can make a request to get back his eligibility. without knowing the story and considering he is a freshman i'm sure he had no idea he couldn't play. and it's not like he was in a serious semi-pro league or anything it was just a rec game which is most time barely more organized then playing pick-up.

I believe the last time this happened was to a West player during the 2000-2001 season and he had to sit 2 games. However, I believe that since then the rule has been made more strict.
