APPEAL HEARING POSTPONED


Here is the press release;

Franklin, MA, May 7, 2009 - - The appeal by Mansfield High School before the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Council (MIAC) scheduled for today has been postponed after the two parties reached a tentative agreement.

Mansfield H.S. was appealing a decision by the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association’s (MIAA) Board of Directors to suspend Football Coach Michael Redding for five games as a result of his failure to report in a timely manner the use of an ineligible player last season. The school was also appealing the MIAA decision to assess them legal fees incurred in the matter.

Attorneys reached an agreement that must be reduced to writing, reviewed by the MIAA Board and ratified before it is official. The Board will take up the agreement at its June 4th meeting. Terms of the agreement are not being released until it is finalized.
