A high school team from Yakima, Washington, has been suspended for two weeks for violating a school policy.
The Yakima Valley High School Wrestling Team was suspended on April 18th after the school’s principal received a call from a student alleging he had been assaulted by a teammate of his at a wrestling match on April 5th.
The student had a concussion and was not able to compete in the team’s match, and the school decided to suspend the team for the duration of the school year, according to the school.
The school announced the suspension on April 26th.
When the student complained to school administrators, the principal found out about the incident and called a meeting with all of the students involved.
The students told the principal that they felt that their teammate had beaten them up and that they were upset because the student had asked them to leave the school because he felt he had not been treated fairly by the school, according a statement from the school district.
The principal then met with all students individually and informed them that they could appeal the suspension to the Yakima School District Board of Education, the district superintendent told KOMO News.
The suspension was announced in a letter from the district’s superintendent, Mike D. Henson, to parents.
He said that the student would be required to complete the program and submit an apology letter to the principal, as well as an “open letter of apology.”
The Yakimat school district’s suspension of the team follows a similar suspension of another high school, the Spokane Regional High School, for three weeks for an alleged fight.
The Spokane Regional team has since been reinstated.
“The Yakamat Valley High school team was suspended for violating the school policy,” a statement said.
“The team’s suspension will continue until the school administration makes a decision regarding whether to appeal the student’s suspension.”
The school district told The Sport Book that it is still working with the student on the appeal process, but it is not yet certain whether that will happen.
The school’s suspension follows a controversy that broke out at the end of March when students and parents filed a lawsuit alleging that a wrestling coach had sexually harassed and physically abused a student.
The allegations of abuse against wrestler Adam M. Bowers and his assistant coach are being investigated by the Spokane Police Department, but the police department has not announced any charges against Bowers.
