LHSAA allows sick teen to play baseball

LHSAA allows sick teen to play baseball | The Sports (Facility Management) Page | Scoop.it
(AP) â€" It took a federal lawsuit against the Louisiana High School Athletic Association to help achieve it, but Family Christian Academy student Sean Thiel is now hearing the words he longed to hear: "Play ball!" After initially declaring the Baton Rouge sophomore with a life-altering illness ineligible to compete on the baseball diamond because he missed too much school, the LHSAA â€" after the March 3 filing of the federal suit â€" decided to grant Thiel a hardship waiver that allowed him to take the field. The Thiel family alleged in their suit the LHSAA discriminated against their son because of his disability and violated the Americans With Disabilities Act and Sean Thiel's constitutional rights when it denied him a hardship waiver despite the fact the family said he met the requirements for the waiver. A student, however, is eligible for a hardship waiver if "the condition that caused the student-athlete not to meet the basic eligibility requirements is involuntary, unforeseen, uncorrectable, and creates a unique situation concerning the student-athlete's educational, emotional, or physical status that is beyond the control of the school, the school system, the student and/or his/her parents or guardian," the LHSAA website states.
