Vashon forfeits 3 basketball championships


By Associated Press

Columbia, MO – The state high school athletics board has stripped Vashon High School of three state championships in boy's basketball for recruiting violations and using ineligible players.

The Missouri State High School Activities Association board on Wednesday voted unanimously to strip Vashon of its 2001, 2004 and 2006 state titles. Those titles will now go to the three runner-ups in those years: Liberty, Kearney and Kickapoo.

Vashon must also forfeit five district championships and a 2005 second-place finish. Activities association spokesman Rick Kindhart says the school used six ineligible players.
