NORTH HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) – The North Haven High School football team will resume their season Saturday after having to forfeit their first game.
The football team also took to Twitter to say that the district’s investigation into inappropriate student conduct has been completed and that they will be returning to practice on Wednesday.
Their next game is scheduled for Sept. 16 at 6:30 p.m. at Lyman Hall High School in Wallingford against Sheehan.
This comes after the team, who won their first state championship last year, had to forfeit their game against Darien over disciplinary issues within the team.
North Haven First Selectman Mike Freda said he first learned of the investigation Friday when the team abruptly canceled their scheduled game against Darien.
“There apparently was an isolated incident of harassment with one player against another and they immediately have issued disciplinary action,” Freda said.
Details of the alleged harassment have not been released by school or town officials but Freda confirmed one player has been kicked off the team.
The district also reported the incident North Haven Police Department and the Department of Children and Families (DCF).
North Haven Public Schools Superintendent Patrick Stirk issued a letter to parents that reads in part.
“As a school district, we do not and will not tolerate harassment or any other inappropriate conduct toward any of our students… There are many policies and procedures in place to ensure the well-being of all of our children.”
