Prep Charter has until the end of the month to return its back-to-back Public League and District 12 girls' basketball titles and all athletic programs will be barred from post season play next season after a third girls' basketball player was found to be living outside the city.
The player, whose name is being withheld by the School District, lived in South Jersey and not at a Southwest Philadelphia address listed at the school. Robert Coleman, the chairman of PIAA District 12, said the rental lease of the Southwest Philadelphia address was "completely bogus" and appeared to be tampered with.
The girls' basketball team, slapped with a one-year postseason ban in May, will now be banned for two postseasons. The Huskies captured the last two Public League titles and in May it was discovered by the School District's Inspector General's office that two players lived outside the city.
Coleman placed all teams on probation after that finding and gave the school a chance to come forward with any other improprieties. But, Coleman said, they failed to do so.
