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

Somerville High School coach Sean Fuller was issued a public reprimand, one-year suspension, and three-year probation for improper interaction with an official. The Somerville High School girls basketball program was issued a two-year probation.

The committee handed down decisions on Edcouch-Elsa High School coaches Joe Garcia, Justin Solis and Brandon Solis for violations of rules regarding non-school participation. Garcia received a verbal reprimand; Justin Solis was issued a public reprimand, probation and three-year suspension, pending appearance before the State Executive Committee. Brandon Solis was issued a public reprimand.

Lake Worth High School coach James Rick was issued a public reprimand, a two-year suspension, and three-years probation for violating eligibility rules.

In other action, appeals from student-athletes representing Brownsville Veterans Memorial High School and Forsan High School were granted. An appeal for varsity eligibility was denied for an Alvin High School student-athlete, upholding the previous ruling of the district executive committees. After hearing testimony from all interested parties, it was ruled that the student-athlete changed schools for athletic reasons.

Del Valle coach Rob Zachary was denied an appeal to overturn violation of section 1208 (j), ejection from a contest. Zachary was issued one-year probation and a public reprimand.
