Prank lands high school softball team on probation

Aug 08, 2013

LAWTON (AP) — An Iowa high school softball team’s pranks at a state tournament have landed the school’s athletic program on probation.

The Sioux City Journal says probation for the Lawton-Bronson High School girls program will last for a year. The Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union says that if there’s misconduct during the probation, the school faces a year’s suspension from all state and regional tournaments.

The pranks occurred in Iowa Central Community College dormitories, where the girls stayed during the tournament July 22-26 in Fort Dodge.

Lawton-Bronson district superintendent Jeff Thelander (THEE’-lan-dur) says the players covered a dorm door in plastic wrap and placed dozens of paper cups filled with water outside doors of opposing players. Thelander also says inappropriate notes were stuck to players’ dorm room doors.
