The ineligible player had already completed eight semesters of high school according to Williston Superintendent Michael Campbell and activities director David Mieure.

This was no fault of the student athlete, once the mistake was discovered, it was reported to the NDHSAA last week.

The Coyotes now sit in last place in the conference with a record of 0-8.
