AHSAA quarterly fines report: 4 soccer-related fines in area
By Gary Lloyd
MONTGOMERY — A report of about 370 fines and ejections released by the Alabama High School Athletic Association includes four offenses from the area.
The 15-page report includes fines and ejections in sports played during the first three months of 2014.
All four offenses from the area are related to soccer and occurred in March.
On March 12, a Hewitt-Trussville High School soccer player was ejected from a game against Spain Park for unsportsmanlike conduct. The school was fined $100.
On March 19, a Clay-Chalkville High School soccer player was ejected from a game against Shades Valley for unsportsmanlike conduct. The school was fined $100. Clay-Chalkville was fined another $100 when a soccer player was ejected for unsportsmanlike conduct in a March 21 game against Gardendale.
Rudd Middle School was fined $50 on March 24 because a girls soccer coach didn’t attend a rules clinic.
The AHSAA began releasing quarterly reports of fines and ejections last year in an attempt to deter violations and improve transparency.
