PV Girls Stripped of State Track Title

Posted: Updated:
The Pleasant Valley Girls Track Team has been stripped of their state track title.

In an email to parents, Superintendent Jim Spelhaug explained the reason behind the state's decision.

"Athletic Director D'Anne Kroemer and I just came out of a closed session with the Board of Directors of the Iowa Girls' High School Athletic Union.  It is with great sadness that I must relay to you their decision to strip the Girls Track and Field Team of State/Regional titles and awards won during the 2014 track season.  This action was taken because a member of the team participated in these meets when she was not eligible.  The IGHSAU Board reached this decision even while admitting Pleasant Valley coaches and administrators in no way were responsible for or knowledgeable of the actions which led the student to be declared ineligible.  The Pleasant Valley Board of Education will discuss what, if any, further steps the district may take relative to this ruling at its August 2014 meeting."
