01/31/14 – Commissioner’s Comments Regarding Alleged Unsporting Acts Involving Sayre and Leslie County

January 31, 2014 2013-2014 News Releases

“The KHSAA has received information relative to alleged unsporting acts and comments made by representatives of the girls’ basketball team at Sayre High School following its game with Leslie County High School on Wednesday. As a sanctioned game under the limitation of seasons of the KHSAA, this potential violation of KHSAA Bylaw 15 would involve the Association. However, after our initial review and conversation with representatives of Sayre, we are confident that the administration of both schools and school systems are aggressively reviewing the incident and until we have final reports of their actions, will allow the process to continue at the local school level.”
