FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

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

Leticia Garza-Cazares of Laredo United South High was denied an appeal of an ejection from a contest and was issued the automatic penalty of a public reprimand, one-year probation, and additional training.

Student-athletes from Lubbock Cooper High School, El Paso Eastlake High School, Pharr-San Juan-Alamo North High School and Longview Spring Hill High School were denied appeals for varsity eligibility, upholding the previous ruling of the district executive committee.

A student-athlete from Tomball High School was granted an appeal for varsity eligibility. After hearing testimony from all parties, it was determined that this student did not change schools for athletic purposes.
