The Maine Principals' Association announced Monday morning that by an unanimous 11-0 vote, its Interscholastic Management Committee has vacated the Western Class A regional and Class A state championships won by the Cheverus boys' basketball team in 2010 due to the Stags' use of ineligible player Indiana Faithfull, an Australian exchange student, who had used up his four seasons and eight consecutive semesters of eligibility.
"The playing of the student violated the Four Seasons of Competition Rule for the entire 2009-10 season, as well as the Eight Consecutive Semester Rule," said the MPA's press release. "Cheverus first discovered that the player's eligibility might be in jeopardy just prior to the end of the first semester in January of 2010. Cheverus removed him from the roster, but a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) was granted, forcing the school to return the student to his former status on the team.
