LEWISTON, N.Y. – A western New York high school has been roiled by a hazing ritual that entailed hurling raw meat at new players on the girls' varsity soccer team.
Schools Superintendent Chris Roser said Friday 10 Lewiston-Porter High School students were suspended for three to five days because of the Labor Day weekend incident.
He says administrators learned this week about the episode, which also involved putting eggs and flour in three or four new players' hair. No one was hurt, but Moser says officials won't accept any "behavior that would demean another student."
He didn't identify the students involved.
Lewiston Police Chief Christopher Salada says investigators are looking into the incident. Lewiston is about 25 miles north of Buffalo.
