Statement from UIL Regarding Ineligible Mount Vernon student-athletes:
The District Executive Committee for District 7-3A met October 8 and ruled two Mount Vernon students ineligible for changing schools for athletic purposes. Because these students were ruled eligible in a previous DEC hearing, Mount Vernon will not forfeit any football games. The students are ineligible for varsity athletic competition starting on October 8, and can appeal this ruling to the State Executive Committee. A date for the SEC hearing has not been determined at this time.
