FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

AUSTIN, TX— The eligibility of two student-athletes was decided and several coaches and high schools were issued penalties after decisions were handed down by the State Executive Committee on Wednesday.

An Austin McCallum High School student-athlete was granted eligibility for varsity athletics after the committee ruled that the student did not change schools for athletic purposes.

A Palestine High School student-athlete’s appeal to regain varsity eligibility was denied by the State Executive Committee. After hearing testimony from all interested parties, the committee ruled that the student changed schools for athletic purposes upholding the previous District 20-3A Executive Committee decision.

Lewisville High School, Anthony High School, Woden High School and Houston North Forest High School were issued a public reprimand and one-year probation for violating steroid protocol.
