AUSTIN, TX— The Hearing Officer of the UIL State Executive Committee ruled on three appeals of ejection from a contest on Thursday.

After hearing testimony from all interested parties, Red Oak High School coach Tatum Thorne and North Dallas High School coach Chris Barnhill were issued public reprimands and placed on probation for one year after the hearing officer denied their appeals for violation of Section 1208(j), ejection from a contest.

In other action, the hearing officer overturned the ejection of Burleson High School coach Jeff Cross granting his appeal for violation of Section 1208(j) of the UIL Constitution and Contest Rules.
