All of the following about Dunbar High School boys basketball from last season and Dayton Public Schools has been previously reported. But it's still daunting to read the official recap by the Ohio High School Athletic Association.
The OHSAA releases its penalties against schools every month. These are schools, programs, teams or individuals who have violated OHSAA bylaws or sports regulations.
The language is sobering, the infractions head-shaking, the fallout widespread.
Dayton Dunbar High School had seven student-athletes in boys junior varsity basketball violate NFHS Rule 10-12-PENb., Leaving the Bench, and OHSAA General Sport Regulation 14.1 note 1, Ejection for Unsporting Conduct.
The school also violated General Sport Regulation 13, Ejection Procedures for Schools, by failing to respond to the ejection report. Pursuant to the basketball playing rules and General Sports Regulation 14.1, the seven players involved were to be ineligible for the next two contests.
However, none of the student-athletes sat out as a result of the incident and one student-athlete participated as an ineligible student during an OHSAA tournament contest with the varsity team.
In accordance with General Sport Regulation 14.1, Bylaw 10-2-1, Forfeitures, and Bylaw 11, Penalties, the school was required to forfeit the victorious contests in which the ineligible students participated; was removed from the 2018 OHSAA boys basketball tournament; and was instructed to forward $2,500 of the original $10,000 fine levied on May 10, 2017, due to a violation of Bylaw 3, Administrative Responsibility and Institutional Control.
Furthermore, following subsequent legal intervention, Dunbar was also removed from the 2019 boys basketball tournament; the Dayton Public Schools system was required to reimburse the OHSAA's court costs, fees and expenses; and the Dayton Public Schools' probationary period has been extended through June 2020, and through June 2022 for Dunbar High School.
