The Arizona Interscholastic Association’s Executive Board today voted to place the Sabino High School girls basketball team on probation effective immediately. This removes Sabino from the 3A postseason. The final decision comes just eighteen  hours after Sabino Sabercats knocked off the #8 Chinle Wildcats in the quarterfinals. Chinle will not get a chance to play Holbrook who the Sabercats next opponent was going to be in this weekends semifinals game in Glendale. Sabercats were in violation of an ineligible player on the roster continuing to play. Page vs Winslow original start time has been moved back to 6 p.m. from 2:30 p.m.

“The Executive Board felt the move was necessary at this time to ensure those teams that abide by fair play get a chance to go for a state title. We will be looking at this incident regarding player ineligibility and team forfeitures to create procedures if it happens again in the future,” said AIA Executive Director David Hines.
