PORTALES, N.M. (AP) – Eastern New Mexico University will be on probation for four years and forfeit five seasons’ worth of victories by nearly all of its sports programs because of eligibility violations.

The NCAA Division II Committee on Infractions Report was released Tuesday.

The NCAA enforcement staff found that ENMU used 132 athletes in 12 different programs who were ineligible to practice or play during the 2008-09 through 2012-13 seasons.

ENMU will forfeit victories from 2008-13 in football, baseball, volleyball and men’s and women’s soccer.

That includes the men’s Lone Star Conference soccer championship in 2011.

The university also will forfeit wins in softball and men’s and women’s basketball from 2008-12 and vacate individual points and team awards in men’s and women’s cross country and track in various seasons.
