The WPIAL board of directors have placed five-year probations on all Monessen and Clairton high school sports programs, as well as fans and players after fights broke out during their February 6th basketball game played at Clairton high school. Players who came off the bench to join the fights have been suspended for one game. Attendance at playoff games will also be limited.
