Andover Student Enables Confirmation Of Common Sense

The SJC's decision that being on the high school swim team isn't a constitutionally protected property interest shouldn't surprise anyone. The case is Mancuso v. Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletics Ass'n, SJC No. 10151.

What's surprising is that two states -- Kansas and New Hampshire -- have held that participating in interscholastic sports is a protected property interest. Massachusetts joins California, Illinois, and Pennsylvania among those states that disagree.
