MHSAA stays quiet on Boothe

Cathedral’s Wyatt Boothe’s eligibility appears to be in good shape.

MHSAA executive director Don Hinton said last week a meeting was scheduled for Monday about the ruling. Boothe’s eligibility came into question after the MHSAA received a complaint from a school.

However, neither Cathedral chief administrator Pat Sanguinetti or Judge Leo Boothe, Wyatt’s father, had heard from the MHSAA at 5 p.m. Monday.

“If (Wyatt’s eligibility) ever changed, they said I would be the first to know,” Sanguinetti said. “It’s 5 p.m., and I didn’t get a phone call and I didn’t anticipate one. They’ve already ruled him eligible.”

Calls to the MHSAA were not returned Monday.

Boothe played in Cathedral’s varsity basketball game Monday night against Trinity and scored seven points.
