BEREA, Ohio -- Baldwin Wallace says its athletic teams will skip postseason play this academic year as it investigates mistakes in awarding financial aid for student-athletes.

The Division III school in suburban Cleveland said Tuesday that it notified the NCAA that the Yellow Jackets are withdrawing from consideration for postseason play. It says it will investigate mistakes in the application of NCAA regulations regarding aid to student-athletes.

In a release, President Dr. Robert C. Helmer says the decision to give up any postseason play was a difficult one.

Baldwin Wallace competes in the Ohio Athletic Conference.
