Gospel of Grace Christian, a Cheltenham school that reached the state basketball tournament last year despite having only 14 boys in ninth through 12th grades, has withdrawn from this year's playoffs because it used an ineligible player, a source said.
The school also had to forfeit its 19 games played against PIAA teams.
A release issued Saturday by District 1 chairman Michael Barber said the district was contacted about "a potentially ineligible player who participated in 19 contests. The school in question was contacted and provided with the information. The school subsequently informed the District 1 office that the player was declared ineligible, resulting in the forfeiture of all contests."
