ANDOVER, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts high school says state officials have found no wrongdoing by varsity hockey coaches accused of denying players food and water as punishment for losing games.
Andover High School Principal Philip Conrad said Friday that the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families notified him that it concluded the allegations against the coaches were unsupported.
Conrad announced earlier this week that the school system investigation found the allegations were “not sustained.”
Conrad says he’s reinstating the three coaches immediately.
