Scott City to forfeit five baseball games

Wednesday, April 9, 2003

SCOTT CITY -- Scott City's baseball team will forfeit five games after 11 team members began a two-week suspension Tuesday for violating school guidelines involving alcohol at a post-prom party Saturday.

The baseball team members were among more than two dozen athletes suspended, which also included members of the track and softball teams.

Those teams will continue as scheduled. The school's citizenship handbook, which all athletes sign prior to participation, calls for a 14-day suspension for the first offense and a 365-day suspension for a second offense.
