School administrators investigate racial incident at high school soccer game
TOPSHAM (WGME) -- Administrators in Topsham and Augusta are investigating a racial incident at a high school soccer game.
The game was played at Mount Ararat High School.
The Mount Ararat athletic director says administrators at Cony High School made them aware of a racial incident after the JV soccer game on September 28.
The incident reportedly involved at least one Mount Ararat player using racial slurs directed at one or more Cony players.
The Cony High School Boys Soccer Team features a number of players from diverse ethnic backgrounds.
In a September 28 Facebook post to the Cony Boys Soccer page, Coach Jon Millett wrote in part: “I’m proud of our guys tonight of the way they played through a multitude of adversity.”
The Mount Ararat athletic director says the high school is in the process of investigating and they are nearing a conclusion.
He says they take the allegation seriously and there is no place for that in their program.
Both district superintendents were unavailable for comment.
