Local News

SAN ANGELO- The District Executive Committee for District 11-1A Div. 1 met on Thursday to discuss an alleged violation of Constitution and Contest Rule 441 A3, regarding a booster club for Veribest ISD paying for individual student athletes to attend non-school team camps.

After hearing statements from Veribest ISD superintendent, Ryder Appleton and athletic director, Denise Richards, the DEC voted unanimously, 6-0, that a violation did occur. As a result, the committee voted unanimously for a verbal reprimand for Veribest ISD. They will not appeal with the UIL.

The allegations were centered around Veribest athletes working at a concession stand, earning money to attend summer camps. When the time came, the booster club wrote a check to the Lubbock Christian Team Camp for their student-athletes, violating UIL CCR 441 A3.

The District Executive Committe for District 11-1A Div. 1 consists of the superintendents from Sterling City, Irion County, Blackwell, Bronte, Robert Lee, Veribest, and Water Valley.
