Carpinteria has been forced to forfeit a nonleague game to Calabasas as 1986 shapes up as the year of the forfeit in the Frontier League.
In the second week of the season, Carpinteria romped to a 40-21 victory over Calabasas, but later learned one of its players was academically ineligible. The school would not name the player.
The forfeit victory moves Calabasas to 5-2-1 overall. Carpinteria is 6-2.
Earlier this season, Agoura picked up two victories on forfeits, and Nordhoff forfeited two wins for using an ineligible player.
Melissa Sutton Goes for 12th Straight Victory
Melissa Sutton of Newbury Park, Christy Farrell of Thousand Oaks, Bryan Dameworth of Agoura and Bobby Bans of Hart will be among 2,000 runners competing in today's Southern Section cross-country preliminaries at Mt. San Antonio College.
Sutton, the two-time defending Southern Section 4-A champion, will attempt to win her 12th consecutive race and set her 11th course record of the season. The Mt. SAC three-mile course record of 17:16 was set by Palos Verdes' Kirsten O'Hara in 1983. Sutton ran a 17:32 at the 1985 Southern Section final.
