Costly Brawl

February 11, 2015

After the Griffith High School and Hammond High School's boys' basketball teams engaged in a first-quarter brawl last week, the IHSAA handed out a stunning punishment in response: It canceled both teams' seasons. 

According to an article in the Indianapolis Star:

  • The squads' remaining regular-season games have been canceled, and neither team will be allowed to play in the state tournament. 
  • Players will have to complete sportsmanship courses, while coaches must complete one on "Teaching and Modeling Behavior."
  • Both schools' boys teams are on probation for the 2015-16 school year.

In a press release detailing the sanctions, the IHSAA stated: 

"This probation is a severe type of warning. It is official notice that serious violations have occurred, are a matter of record and future, similar incidents will not be tolerated."
