No details yet on this hazing incident, but it appears that the administration at Baldwinsville High School (NY) acted swiftly when provided with enough information to determine that hazing may have occurred on the cross country team. The result? The squad was banned from a meet it was hosting at the school this past weekend.
Details from WSYR:
According to a school spokesperson, athletes from the team shared the allegations with administrators on the afternoon of September 20, 2013. School officials say that’s when the alleged incident happened on school grounds. Those claims were supported with what’s being described as “sufficient information” during an early investigation.
Superintendent Jeanne Dangle could not provide details on what exactly happened, but she did tell NewsChannel 9 that a group of athletes from the team came forward after feeling uncomfortable during a team activity.
“We had enough information to suspend activities,” Dangle said. “We are committed to doing a full investigation and getting it done in a timely manner to get the kids back on track.”
