Bongiorni ruled ineligible by WPIAL
The WPIAL Board of Control ruled Thursday that Dylan Bongiorni, who transferred from Burgettstown to West Allegheny in January, is ineligible for sports because the move was made, at least in part, for athletic purposes.
Bongiorni left Burgettstown nine games into the basketball season. He was averaging 19.7 points per game and left the team in the midst of a four-game stretch in five days. The sophomore was also the Blue Devils' starting quarterback the past two seasons and passed for more than 1,000 yards as a freshman.
Bongiorni can not play sports for West Allegheny until one year from the transfer date.
West Allegheny can appeal the WPIAL's decision to the PIAA Board of Control.
