Washington Legislature may try to impose control on high school sports

The Washington state Legislature may try to impose some control on the organization that oversees high school sports in the state.

The move comes after a series of angry Bellevue residents accused the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association of racism, intimidation, and harassment.

An investigation released last year by the WIAA and the Bellevue School District concluded that a few players were encouraged and given tuition assistance to attend an alternative school that made them eligible for sports at Bellevue High.  Some players were given false addresses to make them eligible to play for Bellevue, and coaches were involved in improper recruiting.  (AP)
