In addition, the rival programs from Hammond and Griffith high schools have been placed on probation for the 2015-16 season. Other penalties include mandatory completion by coaches and players of online courses administered by the National Federation of State High School Associations and a $500 per-game reimbursement to other schools scheduled to host the teams yet this season.
