The resignations of Honeoye boys varsity basketball coach Jim Parshall and JV boys basketball coach Jordan Trowbridge were accepted by the district's board of education Wednesday.
The move came a day after it was announced the school had suspended a half dozen of the varsity team's players because of an alleged incident classified by some as hazing that involved varsity players giving JV players wedgies on a bus ride home from a recent road game.
When asked repeatedly about the hazing, Honeoye superintendent David Bells would not elaborate on the details of incident.
“School is simulated life and real life,” he said. “Some of our kids have made some mistakes. We have great kids here. We're working through it. There has been a violation, but we're working through it and going to be moving on.”When asked repeatedly about the hazing, Honeoye superintendent David Bells would not elaborate on the details of incident.
The district forced the team to forfeit its remaining regular season games, but now states a decision hasn't been made regarding sectionals. Athletic Director Mark Storm will fill in as JV coach.
