HAMPSTEAD, NC (WWAY) – According to the team’s schedule on MaxPreps, the Topsail High School baseball team has forfeited nearly all of their past season as school officials investigate rumors of a player’s ineligibility.
The website did report that, “MaxPreps’ baseball rankings have been updated. Topsail’s national and state rank have not changed”.
WWAY was informed by parents on May 3rd about the possible ineligibility of a player that was not addressed by the athletic department. The school’s principal informed our Dustin Dorsey of the ongoing investigation.
We reached out to the school’s athletic director as well as the NCHSAA, but did not receive a comment.
Tonight on WWAY at 11, parents are speaking out. As the deadline looms for playoff seeding, we’re hearing from the family of the player at the center of all of this.
