The North Carolina Independent Schools Athletic Association handed down penalties to Fayetteville's Village Christian Academy last week following an investigation of alleged infractions in the school's football program. The story was initially broken by Nick Stevens of High School OT, a web con- tent subset of WRAL-TV that covers high school athletics. Homar Ramirez, execu- tive director of the NCISAA, released a statement regard- ing the case at Village Christian. In the statement, Ramirez said the NCISAA determined Village had recruited play- ers to play football. It was determined the players were offered impermissible ben- efits by school personnel. The NCISAA placed Village on probation for the 2019-20 and 2020-21 school years. In addition, Village had to forfeit all wins in football for the 2017 and 2018 seasons. That included a state runner-up finish in 2017 and a state championship in 2018. The school was fined an undisclosed amount. The statement also said the NCISAA was sat- isfied with the actions the senior administra- tion at Village had taken to resolve the matter and the measures it had implemented to pre- vent future incidents. High School OT reported that Village super- intendent Tom Rider sent an email to school families that stated the school's administration accepted the ruling of the NCISAA.
