High school lacrosse players accused of using racist slurs to opponents after recent game

A Heber City school is under investigation after student-athletes allegedly used racial slurs after a recent boys’ lacrosse game, per a FOX 13 report.

Parents from Highland High School accused three players from Wasatch High School of using the n-word immediately following Friday’s game between the two schools.

“At the end of the game, a fight happened,” said Lex Scott, the founder of Black Lives Matter Utah, as she read from the civil rights complaint submitted to the organization. “During the fight, three players yelled out, ‘Get the [n-word]’ and went after one of the Black players on the Highland team. It is disgusting and all the players from Highland were in disbelief.”

Scott told The Salt Lake Tribune that parents from Wasatch High have been posting negative comments on and sending negative messages to BLM Utah’s Facebook page.
