BERLIN, Conn. (AP) — The group that oversees high school sports in Connecticut is investigating accusations that a high school was moving students from other towns so they could be eligible to play football.
Berlin Superintendent David Erwin says the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference is reviewing the residency statuses of the Berlin High School football team. He says they want to be sure all the students playing are legitimate students living the town.
The Redcoats are 6-1 this year.
Students are ineligible to play sports if they do not live in the municipality. Erwin says he hopes to have the issue resolved no later than Nov. 20.
New Britain Superintendent Kelt Cooper said in a statement that the district is cooperating with Berlin and the CIAC.
