FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

AUSTIN, TX— Decisions were handed down by the State Executive Committee on Thursday regarding the eligibility of student athletes. Penalties were also issued to a coach for violation of UIL rules.

Student athletes from New Braunfels High School, Pasadena Memorial High School, Tyler Lee High School and Stratford High School had their appeals to regain varsity eligibility denied by the State Executive Committee. After hearing testimony from all interested parties, it was ruled that the students changed schools for athletic purposes.

A student athlete from Royal High School was granted varsity eligibility after the committee ruled that the student did not change schools for athletic purposes.

In other action, Fort Worth Southwest High School coach Lanny Trammell was issued a public reprimand and one-year probation for violation of section 1208 (j) of the UIL Constitution and Contest Rules, ejection from a contest.
