Gardner stripped of 2012 swim title

Gardner High School was stripped of its 2012 Central/South girls’ swim title and placed on probation for two years by the MIAA Monday after an investigation into the high school swim program revealed numerous violations of the bona fide team rule. The team also forfeited its regular-season wins.

A letter from MIAA board of directors chairman and Case principal Brian McCann said, “The conduct of your swim program has been of concern to the Board for many months . . . it appears that MIAA championships earned by your teams over the years, if this past year is any indication, were achieved by a non-school “club team” rather than an education based high school team.”
