Achiever Academy was on its way to a memorable year until eligibility questions derailed its teams. A look back:

• Both the girls’ and boys’ teams were having successful seasons, and the girls’ team secured a top seed in its section.

• The Minnesota State High School League, however, began reviewing player eligibility on the girls’ team. That team, on the verge of a state tournament berth, withdrew from competition within hours of the section championship game.

• Days later, the boys’ team removed as many as five players from the roster before the playoffs and failed to advance.
