VHSL APPEALS COMMITTEE STATEMENT
Statement by VHSL Executive Director Ken Tilley
As in every case that comes before the VHSL Executive Committee, the appeal by
Ocean
Lakes High School was reviewed based upon its own merits in accordance with a
thorough and
structured process. All facts presented were carefully considered by the appeals
committee.
After deliberation, the committee arrived at a decision that it deemed fair and
equitable under
the rules and procedures of the League. Those rules are designed to serve and
protect the best
interests of all member schools and student participants.
It is unfortunate whenever there are adverse consequences such as in this case,
but we are
confident that the Ocean Lakes administration, coaches, players and fans will
respond in a way
that will reflect positively on their entire school community.
