GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. -- The Gwinnett County Board of Education has upheld the suspensions given to several members of the Parkview High School baseball team.
The board met Monday morning to hear appeals on the suspensions, which range from a semester to the entire 2015-16 school year.
The six students were suspended after a hazing incident that occurred in North Charleston, S.C., where the team was participating in a tournament. According to police reports, upperclassmen entered hotel rooms occupied by younger teammates and wrestled with them. They may also have had inappropriate contact with the victims.
