AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — The governing body for high school sports in Texas has announced that a Dallas school is being stripped of its two Class 3A state basketball titles because of an ineligible player.

The University Interscholastic League announced Friday that the Dallas school district has forfeited the 2013 and 2014 boy’s titles won by Madison High School. The runner-up in those title games, Yates High School in Houston, will be named state champions.

Dallas officials also determined that Wilmer-Hutchins High School used an ineligible player and the UIL says the school will forfeit all games in which the student played last season.

Friday’s announcement follows the June firings of more than a dozen Dallas coaches and other district employees for falsifying student residency documents in an effort to assemble stronger basketball teams.
