The school’s superintendent has canceled the remainder of the boys’ varsity basketball team season so a thorough investigation can be conducted.
The incident happened in a cabin on December 22 and involved the three older suspects and a 15-year-old freshman.
Meanwhile, school administrators are still grappling with how exactly to handle the situation.
Superintendent Rick Smith called the whole thing a “tragedy” before canceling the remainder of the basketball season.
Board Chairman Jonathan Welch added that he couldn’t even put into words how the assault has affected the community.
“Tragic, horrific, none describe it,” he said.
