Naylor files complaints against three school districts

Thursday, March 29, 2007

Naylor school officials have filed new complaints with the Missouri State High School Activities Association, alleging that three more Southeast Missouri school districts violated association rules governing school sports.

The complaints were filed against the Doniphan, Clearwater and Van Buren school districts. Naylor schools superintendent Stephen Cookson alleges various violations dealing with eligibility of student athletes and even forfeiture of a girl's basketball game.

The complaints are on the agenda at a weekend meeting of MSHSAA's board of directors at Tan-Tar-A at the Lake of the Ozarks.

In February, officials in the small Bootheel school district filed a complaint with MSHSAA against the Bell City School District. That complaint alleges that members of the boys basketball team didn't meet residency requirements and that one player was improperly enrolled in the school district.
