A recent boys varsity basketball game vs Toga ended in a brawl on the court. Seven students were suspended from school. This included students from both schools. The game was contentious from the start and the Toga student section harassed one student on the team in particular to the point of being mean and inciteful. This student was harassed last year as well. I have not been embarrassed by our students acting the same way at any game. Teasing and taunting in a small way but not continuously every time the same player handles the ball. The tension built up between players and the crowd and unfortunately ended in a very uncomfortable ending to a game. I hope our deans and principals will not allow the student section or any other group to taunt to that degree. Thank you.
