A high school volleyball team in South Fremont, Idaho has been suspended for two games in response to an alleged hazing incident.
The South Fremont High School team has been suspended for a pair of games that would have happened over the past week. The suspension came through last week and canceled events against Marsh Valley on September 13 and Snake River on September 20.
The Rexburg Standard Journal reports that the alleged hazing incident came to light after one of the students who was allegedly hazed complained to the school administration. School staff met to discuss the situation, and though they decided not to release specific details about the incident, they did elect to suspend the entire team for two competitions.
“We have rules and athletic policies for our school and those students and parents sign those,” the school’s athletics director told The Rexburg Standard Journal. “We also have a policy against hazing that students are to read and parents are to read and sign that they understand the policy.”
No individual players were suspended from school, but the incident has prompted an investigation by a local sheriff. That news comes courtesy of the Idaho State Journal, which reported three days after the Rexburg Standard Journal report that the Fremont County Sheriff’s office was investigating the incident. The sheriff also declined to release any specifics of the situation.
