The Nazareth Senior wrestlers charged with dealing drugs at Jacobsburg Park have found a loophole that may keep them on the mat for the 2010/11 season.
Ryan Krecker and Franco Ferraina were charged earlier this month on various drug charges. The school district has a policy in plan that bans extra-curricular activity for one year in these circumstances. There is a program in place for first time offenders however that limits the suspension to 5 weeks if the offender meets with the parents and the school, completes a drug program and 20 hrs of community service.
This is where the loophole comes in. In an effort to avoid the 5 week wrestling suspension both boys have signed up for the Cross Country team. They are serving their 5 week suspension for that season which will allow them to compete in a full wrestling scheduled.
What are your thoughts on this issue? Should the policy be amended? Check out the full story here and leave your thoughts below.
