Sayreville (NJ) High School cancels football season over hazing
NJ Advance Media is reporting that Sayreville School Superintendent Richard Labbe has canceled the remainder of the high school football season. Last week, an anonymous source reported hazing of a sexual nature to the local police. They briefed Labbe who canceled that night’s game. Over the next couple days, he consulted with the county prosecutor’s office. Based on those talks and with the support of the Board of Education, he decided to cancel the entire season Monday.
I’ve driven past this school many times on my way to visiting family. Kudos to the superintendent and the school board for acting so quickly and decisively.
