FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

AUSTIN, TX— The State Executive Committee of the University Interscholastic League met Wednesday to hand down decisions on eligibility of student athletes and issue penalties for UIL rule violations.

Student athletes from Pflugerville High School, Houston Cypress Ranch High School, and Banquete High School were denied appeals for varsity eligibility, upholding the previous decisions of the district executive committees.

Stratford High School coach Tanner Martin was issued a pubic reprimand for conducting team practices during the offseason. Stratford girls basketball team will delay the start of practice by four days and can begin after-school practice on October 26.

The committee granted Pottsboro High School’s appeal of forfeiture of football contests in which an ineligible player participated. The school will not have to forfeit games in which an ineligible player participated.

Based on the facts presented, it was determined that Pottsboro High School exercised sufficient diligence in determining the eligibility of the student involved.
