WAKEFIELD, Mass., Nov. 2 (UPI) -- A Massachusetts high school's track team is raising controversy with sweatshirts bearing the team's initials, WTF.

The shirts, handed out by the Wakefield Track and Field team's boosters organization after the last season, are causing controversy with parents and officials due to the initials, WTF, also representing a popular colloquialism for Internet chatting and text messaging containing a vulgar term, WCVB-TV, Boston, reported Tuesday.

Superintendent Joan Landers said she was unaware of the double meaning behind the initials and the phrase is not the way she wants students represented.
