Maine South Football Champs May Face Sanctions

PARK RIDGE, Ill. (WBBM) – Maine South High School in Park Ridge faces possible sanctions after its football team won its third consecutive state championship this weekend.

As WBBM Newsradio 780’s Nancy Harty reports, the Illinois High School Association has asked members of the Maine South administration and football coaching staff to answer questions at an ISHA board meeting in two weeks.

The school is to finish with an investigation and be prepared to talk about the counterfeit sideline passes that were distributed at the state finals at the University of Illinois this past weekend.

In a statement, the IHSA says it takes the abuses very seriously, since they could be a safety issue and provide a competitive advantage.

There is no word on what the sanctions might be.
