5 Pierz Boys’ Basketball Players Suspended

PIERZ  (AP) — Five basketball players from Pierz Healy High School have been suspended from school for three days for an alleged hazing incident.

Superintendent George Weber says the Pierz boys’ basketball team was on its way home from a game in Maple Lake when one of the players reported that he was inappropriately touched and felt violated. The student was not touched sexually.

Weber says the five students were suspended Monday through Wednesday and will return to school Thursday. The boys will not be able to play in any basketball games for two weeks.

The superintendent says school officials have been talking with high school students about inappropriate behavior and making sure that the students don’t hold any animosity.
