Woodrow Wilson High School's football team was disqualified from this week's Turkey Bowl after D.C. school officials learned that one of the players lives in Maryland.
An audit released Monday shows enrollment in the District's traditional public schools decreased slightly from 2010 to 2011, despite significant population growth in the city.
Ms. Salmanowitz said that by the end of last week, the school system had confirmed the teenager did not live within district lines, but rather 13 miles away.
D.C. schools spokeswoman Melissa Salmanowitz said in a statement that the school had to forfeit the two games, making it "ineligible for the playoffs and the Turkey Bowl."
