High school program suspended amid sex misconduct allegation
STRASBURG, Va. (AP) A northern Virginia high school's boys basketball program has been suspended indefinitely following allegations of sexual misconduct on a team bus.
News outlets report that Shenandoah County Schools Superintendent Jeremy Raley on Thursday suspended the Strasburg High boys varsity and junior varsity practices and games until further notice.
Raley says the incident was reported to administrators earlier this week.
Shenandoah County Sheriff's Maj. Scott Proctor says his office is investigating an alleged sexual assault on a team bus in mid-December. Proctor says the alleged victim was a teenage boy who was traveling with the team. Strasburg police reported the incident to the sheriff's office Tuesday.
Raley and Proctor didn't immediately return telephone messages Friday.
