Cheyenne Mountain, which had lost 3-2 to Bishop Macheuf in a quarterfinal game earlier this week, has replaced BMHS in the semifinals. Machebeuf allowed an ineligible player to participate in its game against Cheyenne Mountain and has forfeited that game. The player did not play any previous playoff contest.

The Colorado High School Activities Association became aware of the situation on Thursday night and contacted Bishop Machebeuf. The school investigated the concern and discovered the ineligible player. Following an appeal, as allowed by CHSAA by-laws, the game was declared a forfeit.

When it was determined that the player did not play in any previous playoff game, Cheyenne Mountain was placed on the bracket and will play Regis Jesuit at 6:00 p.m. tonight at the World Arena in Colorado Springs.

“While it was unfortunate that this situation occurred, the facts in the case allowed us to keep the bracket in intact and there will be two semifinal games tonight,” CHSAA Commissioner Bill Reader said.
