Heritage boys basketball team forfeits three wins

Heritage has had to forfeit nonleague wins over Armijo-Fairfield and Escalon and its Bay Valley Athletic League win over Liberty this month for use of an ineligible player, school athletic director and Patriots coach Pat Cruickshank said Thursday. Cruickshank said the player’s ineligibility stemmed from paperwork issues and added he hopes to have the problem resolved soon. The losses drop Heritage’s record to 7-10 overall and 0-1 in the BVAL going into Friday’s game at Antioch.
