C.H. Flowers Forfeits Three Victories

Saturday, October 6, 2007

C.H. Flowers has forfeited three of its four victories after it was found to have used an ineligible player.

Flowers, ranked No. 12, will have to forfeit victories over Bladensburg, Parkdale and Wise, according to Earl Hawkins, supervisor of athletics for Prince George's County.

"One player was using an incorrect residence" as a means for supplying an address, Hawkins said. "There were no coaches involved" in helping the student get the improper address, referring to the recent case involving players at Eleanor Roosevelt.

Hawkins said he is continuing to investigate the Flowers case, and added that the Jaguars might also have to forfeit a Sept. 21 victory over DuVal if it was determined that player participated in that game.

Flowers plays at Oxon Hill today at 3 p.m.
