FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

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

The State Executive Committee denied the appeal for the exception to forfeiture of contest by Northside Stevens High School. The Stevens boys basketball team must forfeit all 18 games in which an ineligible player participated.

El Paso Bel Air High School coach Sergio Delgado was issued a public reprimand and place on probation for one year for violation of Section 51 (a) (8) and 1201 (a) (7) of the UIL Constitution and Contest Rules.

A student-athlete from Fort Bend Bush High School was denied their appeal for varsity eligibility upholding the previous ruling of the District 23-5A Executive Committee. After hearing testimony from all interested parties, it was ruled that the student-athlete changed schools for athletic reasons.

In other action, a student-athlete from Rosenberg Terry High School had their appeal to regain varsity eligibility granted after the committee ruled that the student-athlete did not change schools for athletic reasons.

Briscoe Fort Elliott High School coach Brad Slatton was issued a public reprimand, two years probation and a one-game suspension for being ejected from a contest while on probation.
