FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

AUSTIN, TX— The 2005 Conference 4A state basketball championship won by Dallas South Oak Cliff High School has been forfeited, and San Antonio Houston High School will be designated as the champion.

After an internal investigation, Dallas ISD determined that three ineligible players participated in the state basketball tournament in 2005. The minimum penalty for allowing an ineligible player to participate is forfeiture of those contests in which the player participated. Dallas ISD has indicated to the UIL that they have accepted the minimum penalty, and have therefore forfeited the 2005 Conference 4A title.

San Antonio Houston High School, defeated by Dallas South Oak Cliff in the state championship game will now be designated by the UIL as the state champion. The game will be listed as a 2-0 win in favor of San Antonio Houston in tournament records, and all state tournament records set by that game will be expunged.
