    According to our news partners at TribLIVE.com, the Western Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic League has put Clairton and Monessen on an unprecedented 5-year probation.

    If either sports team violates that probation, they will be banned from postseason and that team won’t be allowed to play in the WPIAL the following regular season.


    The decision comes after a large fight at a Clairton High School basketball game was caught on-camera.

    Police told Channel 11 they are still investigating the incident to determine if any charges will be filed.

    A Clairton district representative said an internal investigation would be conducted.

    In Monessen, they will not discuss what, if any, disciplinary action any students will face.
