Robertson forfeits tournament matches for using ineligible player

September 28, 2018

Las Vegas Robertson’s volleyball team forfeited all three of its wins in the silver bracket of the Tournament of Champions after using an ineligible player.

Stacy Fulgenzi, the Lady Cardinals head coach, said she pulled up a few junior varsity players to add some depth for what was going to be a grueling two days of volleyball action. One of the players was a transfer who was not yet eligible to play. Fulgenzi took responsibility for the error and said the school self-reported it to the New Mexico Activities Association.

Fulgenzi added that the player was not used in any other matches. The forfeits drop Robertson to 4-4.
