OKLAHOMA CITY — As for that imbalance being a problem, Sheakley said, “we’ll evaluate it based on the feedback after we’ve done this for a season.”
“Any school representative who publicly criticizes a contest official, and any contest official who publicly criticizes a school representative in connection with a contest, meet, or tournament is subject to sanctions.
“The member school represented by an individual who publicly criticizes a contest official may also be subject to sanctions if the school fails to take appropriate action in response to the school representative’s public criticism of the contest official. The sanctions could include warning or suspension. Public criticism includes, but is not limited to, comments made to the media or during a broadcasted event, and comments made in a public forum.”
