FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

AUSTIN, TX— The State Executive Committee of the University Interscholastic League issued penalties to coaches and a school for violation of UIL rules on Monday. The committee also handed down decisions on the eligibility of several student athletes. 

Hidalgo Early College High School was issued a public reprimand and was placed on probation for two years for violation of UIL rules. The State Executive Committee suspended former Hidalgo Early College High School coach Arnold Martinez from coaching at a UIL member school and requested that he appear before the committee before the suspension may be lifted. Additionally, Hidalgo Early College High School coach Monica Rodriguez was issued a public reprimand and placed on probation for one year.

Waco Midway High School coach Calvin Hill was issued a public reprimand and placed on probation for two years for improper interaction with an official and ejection from a contest. Additionally, Hill was suspended for the first two games of the 2010 football season.

Student athletes from Cypress Ranch High School, Clear Brook High School, Alamo Heights High School and Levelland High School were denied their appeals for varsity eligibility upholding the previous rulings of the district executive committees. After hearing testimony from all interested parties, it was ruled that the student athletes changed schools for athletic purposes.

In other action, Mission Middle School coach Ben Gonzalez and Edgewood-Wrenn Middle School coach Charlie Green were issued a public reprimand and placed on one-year probation each for violation of section 1208(j), ejection from a contest.
