Andover High punishes several student-athletes
ANDOVER, Mass.—An investigation into allegations of hazing by the Andover High School boys' basketball team has resulted in the expulsion of two students and the dismissal of at least five others from the team.
The Eagle-Tribune (http://bit.ly/u3awC1) reports that Superintendent Marinel McGrath sent a letter to parents Wednesday explaining the investigation and saying students violated the schools' anti-hazing and anti-bullying policies. She called the players' actions "both disappointing and disturbing."
The alleged violations occurred last summer during a basketball camp at Stonehill College in Easton and were of a sexual nature. Stonehill was not affiliated with the camp, just rented campus facilities to the camp.
The team's coach had no comment on the conclusion of the investigation, but previously said he reported the violations as soon as he learned of them.
