Court Reinstates Player

March 6, 2018

In late February, a girls' basketball player from the Red Creek (N.Y.) Central School District was issued a technical foul in a game, which removed her from the present contest and the next one. According to 13WHAM, the players' parents felt the offical's call was incorrect and took the matter to court.

Kathy Hoyt, Executive Director of Section V Athletics, cited the rules, saying that players who are disqualified from a game based on an official's ruling will be unable to play in the next game.

"It's not appeal-able because it was a judgement call from an official," Hoyt said.

However, the Rochester State Supreme Court disagreed and orderd the player to be allowed to suit up for the next game. Red Creek lost the game, ending its season.

Adriana Kemp, a Section V basketball player in Lyons, expressed doubt as to whether it was the right decision.

"I'm on the fence with this," Kemp said. "It has to be a legit reason for you not to play, and if she got ejected, she should not be able to play."

David Sholes, Superintendent of Red Creek Central School District, agreed with the decision to reinstate the player, saying that officials should be held accountable for making bad calls.

"I'd like the State Public High School Athletic Association to have some sort of due process for a student athlete who is treated unjustly and unfairly," Sholes said. "I think that's only normal in America."
