KIPP to Forfeit Playoff Game to Banks County

KIPP Atlanta Collegiate has informed the GHSA that it intends to forfeit its Class AA first-round state playoff football game, scheduled to be played this Friday at Banks County.

As the result of a fight that occurred during KIPP’s game against Hapeville Charter last week, officials at KIPP Collegiate have decided to forfeit the playoff contest this week rather than let their team travel to Banks County.

GHSA By-Law 2.29 (b) on Page 33 of the Constitution & By-Laws states that any team choosing not to play after qualifying for the playoffs will owe the opposing team restitution and could face other possible fines and penalties.
