Edgewood football team disqualified from WIAA playoffs

MADISON, Wis. — Edgewood High School’s undefeated and top-seeded football team is being disqualified from the WIAA tournament days before they were scheduled to play their next playoff game.

The WIAA’s official Division 4 bracket shows Kewaskum as now facing second-seeded Columbus on Friday night instead of Edgewood, who originally defeated Kewaskum 40-0 last Friday. However, the WIAA is now determining Kewaskum as the winner due to forfeit.

Edgewood High School’s communications coordinator said they were notified by the WIAA of an alleged eligibility violation with someone on the football team.

Edgewood says it has filed an immediate appeal with the WIAA and it is reviewing its legal options.
