FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

AUSTIN, TX— The State Executive Committee of the University Interscholastic League issued penalties to coaches for violations of UIL rules and handed down decisions on the eligibility of student-athletes on Tuesday.

Austin High School coach Larry Don Williams was issued a public reprimand, placed on probation for one year and suspended for one game for violation of Section 1208 (j) and Section 1208 (i)(1) of the UIL Constitution and Contest Rules.

Student-athletes from Houston Yates High School and Dallas Highland Park 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.

A student-athlete from Freer High School had their appeal to regain varsity eligibility granted after the committee ruled that the student-athlete did not change schools for athletic purposes.

In other action, Fort Elliott High School coach Matt Sardello was issued a public reprimand and placed on probation for one year for violation of Section 1208 (j), ejection from a contest.
