Aberdeen boys basketball team forfeits 11 wins due to ineligible player

The Baltimore Sun

The Aberdeen boys basketball team forfeited 11 wins after learning it had been playing with an ineligible player this season.

Harford County supervisor of athletics Ken Zorbach said the school did its own investigation and reported the findings to his office on Monday, along with notifying the other schools who were involved in the games and the Class 3A East regional chairperson in the Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association.

The Eagles, who were 13-4 overall and leading the Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference's Chesapeake division with an 8-1 mark, are now 2-15 and 1-8 in league play. They also were in position to claim one of the top four seeds in the upcoming MPSSAA region playoffs.

"They discovered they were playing with an ineligible player, investigated it and then called me about it -- this is what we had to do," Zorbach said.

With the adjusted standings, Patterson Mill (14-4) takes over first place in the Chesapeake division with a 10-1 mark and Edgewood is now 13-4 and 9-1 in league play.
