OLIVE HILL — No Champs in 2012

After the KHSAA delivered sanctions that stripped Fairview of all its wins from 2012, the EKC has decided to strip Fairview of the 2012 championship according to EKC Assistant Commissioner Tim Carper.

Carper said the record books will show there will be no champion that year.

“After the KHSAA made their ruling concerning Fairview High School, they had to forfeit every game,” Carper said. “Five of those wins were EKC wins. So the Football Committee talked about it, and we thought the only fair thing to do was to strip them of the EKC title.”

While the championship was vacated, individual awards will still be recognized.

The team trophy has already been returned by Fairview superintendent Bill Musick and Carper has told former Eagles’ coach Nathan McPeek and former athletic director Garry McPeek of the decision.

“All three said they understood why we did it,” Carper said. “There was no animosity or anything personal against Fairview, it was something we thought was the right thing to do. It was a good ending to what could have been a tough situation, but they made it very easy on us.”
