BUTLER COUNTY, Pa. - A Butler County school district was forced to hold a special meeting to discuss reports of students being hazed on the football team.
District leads at Moniteau High School said they’re investigating a report of hazing at the Warriors' summer training camp.
The school’s solicitor told Channel 11’s Amy Marcinkiewicz that the incident in question happened Aug. 13 during camp.
The solicitor said a few upperclassmen are accused of hazing freshman players.
The school’s superintendent said Wednesday that he regrets the situation happened and that a full investigation will follow.
A lot of West Sunbury residents told Marcinkiewicz Wednesday that they’re upset at the allegations.
“That’s no good, and it shouldn’t be done,” Paul Dunn said.
Marlene Pope thinks the students involved should be expelled.
“I want my kids to play sports, and I don’t want this happening to them,” Pope said.
School officials said Friday night’s game is still on, and they can’t comment on what discipline the students involved could face.
