According to the Minnesota State High School League,  "Judge upholds the disqualification of team from state soccer tournament.

Following a hearing in Hennepin County District Court this morning, Judge Jay M. Quam denied a
motion for a temporary restraining order that would have temporarily prevented the Minnesota State High
School League’s disqualification of Prairie Seeds Academy of Brooklyn Park from the State Class A
Boys’ Soccer Tournament.
Prairie Seeds Academy was disqualified by the League for violating League bylaws which led to
use of an ineligible player this season. League Bylaw 304—Ineligible Student states: “If an ineligible
student is used in any interscholastic contest, whether deliberately or inadvertently, forfeiture of the game
and honors for team sports … shall be automatic and mandatory.”
“It's unfortunate anytime students are not allowed to participate,” stated League Executive Director
Dave Stead following Judge Quam’s ruling. “The decision upholds the integrity of the League’s bylaws.”
