BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – The Athletic Director of Catholic High School, Ben DiPalma, has issued a statement in response to reports of a Louisiana High School Athletic Association (LHSAA) investigation that ended earlier this summer.
“In March of 2021, the LHSAA informed Catholic High School that it was under investigation regarding alleged violations within the school’s football program that potentially occurred in 2017. Catholic High School administrators worked diligently with the LHSAA to aid them in their investigation in whatever way possible. The investigation concluded in May of 2021. It was determined that Catholic High School’s 2017 and 2020 State Titles, and the 2018 and 2019 State Runner-up titles would be revoked.”
“CHS respects the confidentiality policy between the LHSAA and member schools, and will not comment further. As this matter is now closed, we look forward to moving on to the 2021 Football Season and post season under new head coach, David Simoneaux.”Ben DiPalma, Catholic High School Athletic Director
