The OSAA Executive Board approved moving the Class 4A/3A/2A/1A state tennis tournament to Oregon State University from its home of the past few years of University of Oregon.
The state tournament takes place May 22-24.
The small school state tennis tournament would have conflicted with the state track and field meets at Hayward Field at Oregon.
In other action by the Executive Board, Salem Academy’s football team will forfeit four games and pay a $100 fine for using an ineligible player. The team was 3-7 this season.
Also, an unnamed Oregon School for the Deaf football player was placed on probation for the remainder of his high school career for making physical contact with an official.
Sprague’s girls basketball program will hold a clinic Jan. 2 and 3 for players in grades 2 through 8.
The clinic, which will be run by Sprague’s coaches and players, runs from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.
The cost is $25.
