Schwab: Mooseheart to do ‘whatever it takes’ to meet IHSA’s conditions
Mooseheart is on the clock, and the school wasted no time beginning to satisfy the IHSA’s mandatory steps to have the school’s probation lifted in time for the basketball postseason.
The IHSA Board of Directors on Monday voted unanimously to overturn IHSA administrators’ previous ruling that Mooseheart boys basketball players Akim Nyang, Makur Puou and Mangisto Deng lose their eligibility to compete because of inappropriate recruiting on Mooseheart’s part. The IHSA, though, also placed Mooseheart on probation until the school re-assesses its admissions policies as they relate to IHSA bylaws, conducts training for coaches and staff members and presents IHSA executive director Marty Hickman with a compliance plan.
The expectation is Mooseheart will be able to complete those steps in time to have the probation lifted before the postseason begins. For the smaller-school classes – Mooseheart is a 1A program – regionals begin the week of Feb. 18. The school has no intention of cutting that timetable close.
