BELLEVUE, Wash. -- The superintendent of the Bellevue School District responded Tuesday to the findings of an independent investigation of the Bellevue High School football team.

The investigation found the team violated rules that put certain players on the roster, giving the team an unfair advantage. The investigation also found boosters paid for student athletes to attend a private alternative school and false addresses were used to make them eligible.

The Bellevue Wolverines Football Club said in a statement it believes it didn't violate any WIAA regulations but will work with the school district toward a fair resolution.

School District Superintendent Tim Mills said some of the findings in the report "require immediate attention." He added that the district believes "in the importance of fair play and rules."
