The WIAA ruled late Thursday morning that Xavier used an ineligible player on Saturday night when they defeated Little Chute in a Division 3 boys basketball regional final.
The WIAA ruled late Thursday morning that Xavier used an ineligible player on Saturday night when they defeated Little Chute in a Division 3 boys basketball regional final.

As a result, Xavier forfeits their victory, and Little Chute will instead face Fox Valley Lutheran in a sectional semifinal tonight at Appleton East high school.

Xavier High School released a statement on their website saying they self-reported the infraction to the WIAA when they were made aware of it on Thursday morning.  The infraction took place when a player on the Xavier team took part in a non-high school basketball game.

A Fox Valley Lutheran official told Local 5 that their team had been preparing to face Xavier all week, but received a call from the WIAA late Thursday morning that they would be facing Little Chute instead.

Little Chute has a 21-3 record this season, while Fox Valley Lutheran is 19-5.  They split their two regular season meetings.

Local 5 will have more on this story as it develops.
