The UIL State Executive Committee issued these sanctions today following public hearings:
- The Plano [ISD] West High School speech and debate department and its coach, Robey Holland, were each put on one year probation. Holland was additionally issued a public reprimand.
The sanctions were levied for violations of the league’s Sunday participation rule, which prohibit (with limited exceptions) UIL member schools from sponsoring students in a UIL contest — or holding an academic contest similar to one offered by the UIL — on a Sunday.
- McCamey ISD and its athletic director, Michael Woodard, were each put on two years probation and were given public reprimands for specified violations of UIL rules. (NewsWest Nine)
