“During the spring break baseball trip to Tennessee our coach received reports of incidents that certainly don’t support our values for our students,” Morris said. “Right now we are conducting an internal investigation and we contacted authorities and we are working with them.”
The district’s assistant superintendent is interviewing players and parents today in an attempt to get to the bottom of what happened, Morris said. Shawnee baseball games have been cancelled over the past few days, but Morris said he doesn't expect the season to be completely cancelled due to any of the incidents being investigated.
