Cheerleaders punished for urine prank

April 8, 2010 at 3:10 PM

FORT WORTH, Texas, April 8 (UPI) -- Officials with a Texas school district said a group of high school cheerleaders was disciplined for giving urine-tainted drinks to teammates.

Administrators said at least two girls at Fort Worth's Saginaw High School received in-school suspensions and an unspecified number of their fellow cheerleaders received lesser punishments for serving sodas contaminated with a cheerleader's urine to their teammates during a basketball game late last year, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported Thursday.

District officials said Principal Ric Canterbury began an investigation after hearing rumors about the incident. They said the girls involved in the prank will be barred from cheerleading events for the remainder of the school year but will be eligible to rejoin the team during the next school year.

The father of one of the girls who drank the contaminated soda said the offending cheerleaders should be permanently removed from the team.

"They shouldn't be allowed to represent Saginaw," said the parent, who asked not to be named to protect his daughter's anonymity.
