Aliquippa Wins Court Appeal, Staying in 4A

Published

Aliquippa LB/TE Cameron Lindsey

The Aliquippa is synonymous with winning and today the Quips received another huge victory off the playing field.

After weeks of courtroom testimony, Common Pleas Judge James Ross issued a preliminary injunction today against the PIAA stating that Aliquippa will stay in 4A for the 2024 season.

This ruling goes against a previous decision by the PIAA that had Aliquippa moving up to 5A under the PIAA competitive-balance rule.

The Aliquippa lawyers argued that moving the team up to 5A was unfair and potentially physically harmful, having to play against school districts three to four times larger.

Aliquippa presented witnesses such as orthopedic surgeons Stephen Hribar and Patrick DeMeo, superintendent Phillip Woods, athletic director Jennifer Damico, and football coach Mike Warfield.

The WPIAL has already issued Aliquippa a 2024 schedule and that will have to be redone.

I guess recruiting and transfers into the district does not mean anything. Just make it fair for everyone and not play politics or reparations. FJB.

First of all we don’t Recruit. Get your facts strait. All these other big schools Recruit and nothing is said. What about alot of Aliquippa’s kids at other schools and Noone said anything about them leaving or being Recruit. We have 3 home grown Hall of Famer, we don’t need to Recruit. Homegrown and if you do your research then you would reframe from negative remarks. Talk what you know.
