Well geez then at least etch in ‘Cheats’ after ‘State Champion’ on their trophies
League won't make Chief Sealth girls forfeit any games

The Metro 3A League ruled Wednesday that the Chief Sealth High School girls basketball team should not have to forfeit any games for repeatedly violating recruiting rules.

In a 9-2 vote, a committee of principals from each of the league's schools accepted the Seattle School District's recommendation that the team be placed on probation for two years — but decided against imposing other penalties such as forfeiture of games, fines or expulsion from the league. Forfeiture could have led to the nationally ranked school losing the state titles it won this year and last

In a somewhat related matter; there's talk about putting an asterisk in the record books next to Barry Bonds’ name should he break Babe Ruth’s homerun record. Personally, I think a miniature hypodermic needle would be more appropriate.
