Griffith, Hammond appeal to be heard

Griffith and Hammond high schools have filed a lawsuit in Lake County Court with respect to the decision of the IHSAA Review Committee to uphold the penalties issued to Griffith High School and Hammond High School as a result of their boys basketball game of Feb. 7, 2015. Griffith and Hammond were barred from this year’s state tournament, and the remainder of their seasons canceled, following a fight that broke out between the teams on Feb. 7.

The injunction hearing will be heard Monday at 7:45 a.m. at the Lake County Courthouse on whether both schools will be reinstated into the tournament.

Additionally, the court has asked the IHSAA to construct a “temporary draw” of Sectional 17 hosted by Hammond Gavit. That was accomplished Friday afternoon at the IHSAA office, was videotaped and witnessed by both IHSAA staff members and a nonstaff member.

Should the court find in favor of the plaintiffs, Griffith High School and Hammond High School will be included in the sectional tournament.

Finally, should the court rule in favor of the plaintiffs, Sectional 17 will be postponed until Thursday evening in order for all member schools in the sectional to have proper time to prepare for their new opponents.
