It’s been nearly six years since BadJocks first stunned the sports world with photos from the Northwestern Women’s Soccer Team show players being hazed wearing blindfolds, with their hands behind their backs. Parents and educators were shocked, investigations were launched and now, in 2012, we can report progress: the same crap is now being done at the high school level.
At Joliet West High School, not far from Northwestern’s Evanston, IL campus, a new scandal erupted over the weekend as photos from a hotel room initiation–with an adult chaperone or coach watching–emerged on Facebook. In one image, a blindfolded member of the team has her hands bound and is plastic-wrapped to a chair, while someone shoves a bar of soap in her mouth. Another appears to fight off a can a whipped topping being shoved in her mouth with her bound hands. You can just feel the love in the room, can’t you?
As for punishments, the only official statement the school has made says “Please know that we are taking this matter extremely seriously.” Some parents say a few players have been suspended and the coach was not present at the team’s last game, but otherwise everything seemed to be pretty normal.
Video and additional details on this story from CBS 2 in Chicago:
And you thought high school girl’s soccer was boring?
A South Carolina TV news crew was taping a game between Chester High School and Lewisville High School when one of the players, Annette McCullough of LHS, falls to the ground. There was a Chester player running with her, but if you watch the video it’s hard to say there was anything but a little incidental contact. McCullogh didn’t think so and immediately gets up, pulls the Chester player to the ground and starts punching her in the face.
Fortunately, a female coach or parent nearby runs in and separates the two and eventually McCullogh is lead off the field by an official. The local sheriff’s office was called and, as a result, McCullough is being charged with simple assault. No word if the victim was seriously injured in the attack. Watch the video for yourself below!
The bad news is that Bulldog soccer player Carli Shultis is banned from all eateries on campus for the next year. The good news? We found a picture of her in a bikini! That makes it all better doesn’t it?
No, not really.
And it really doesn’t explain why a 19-year-old young woman would shove a $1.06 worth of hash browns down her pants when she had money elsewhere that could easily pay for them. So . . . was it part of a soccer team hazing? A dare of sorts? A way to heat up her cold loins?
No explanation is forthcoming, but Carli is still on the team and doing her own cooking these days. But it does make you wonder what it a kid from Eagles Landing Christian School, who claims her favorite movie is called “Law Abiding Citizen” was doing with hot, steamy fried potatoes in her underwear. Surely a college student could find a better place to hide them?
