Honeoye, N.Y.- The Honeoye School District’s boys’ basketball team will not take part in this year’s Section V post-season tournament, according to a statement on the district’s website.
This comes after school officials said there was a hazing incident between the Varsity and JV basketball players on a team bus on the way home from a game.
Last week, the Honeoye Board of Education unanimously accepted the resignation of the Junior Varsity and Varsity coaches.
On the school district’s website Superintendent David Bills said, “Although unfortunate, this is an opportunity for our student athletes, who are representatives of our school district, to learn and grow. This learning experience allows our school community and students to further realize those elements of strong character, developed through athletic participation. It is our goal for the team to return to competition next year as ambassadors for the community of Honeoye.”
