The Grants Pass High School baseball team, which Del Norte High played last weekend, has to forfeit 11 baseball games due to having an ineligible player on its roster.
According to an article in the Grants Pass Daily Courier, Grants Pass High athletics officials learned Tuesday that outfielder Levi Darling lives in the North Valley School District.
An anonymous call to the district office touched off an investigation. Grants Pass High reported the issue to the Oregon School Activities Association.
Because of this Grants Pass will forfeit the 11 games it has played so far this season.
On Saturday in Crescent City, Grants Pass defeated Del Norte 15-1, 10-3 in doubleheader action.
When reached Wednesday night, Warrior head coach Pablo Lorenzi said he was unaware that Grants Pass had forfited their games.
He said he would look into the situation and see what this means for Del Norte and the games played last weekend.

Illness hampers Del Norte star
Before taking the mat for the fifth-place match at the National High School Coaches Association Senior Nationals in Virginia Beach, Va., on Sunday, Roger “Bronc” McCovey considered forfeiting.
The two-time California heavyweight wrestling champion from Del Norte High had been suffering from a flu bug since Saturday.
He felt nauseous, like he was going to throw up, and his arms and legs felt heavy.
But Bronc decided to give it all he could muster and wrestle. He then dominated Justin Britt of Missouri, 11-1, to take 5th place and earn All-American honors for the second straight year.
“He was a big guy,” McCovey said in a telephone interview Sunday night, adding, “I wrestled defensively.”

For the second straight year, Roger “Bronc” McCovey has earned All-American wrestling honors.
The Del Norte High School senior heavyweight downed Justin Britt of Missouri 11-1 Sunday afternoon to take 5th place in the extremely competitive 64-man heavyweight field at the National High School Coaches Association Senior Nationals in Virginia Beach, Va.
Last year at the junior nationals in Virginia Beach, McCovey took third. The top eight finishers earn All-American honors.
While the two-time undefeated state of California heavyweight champion did not fulfill his goal of becoming a national champion, being an All-American for two straight years is a stellar accomplishment for any wrestler and cements his status as one of the top grapplers in the nation.
Seven of the top-13-ranked heavyweights in the country, including McCovey, participated at nationals.
