New Jersey school cancels season over alleged hazing incidents


by Jeff Fisher

The 2014 Sayreville High School season at all-levels has been cancelled.

The Star-Ledger reports that superintendent Richard Labbe made the announcement Monday night. The decision came after a two hour meeting with the parents of football players.

Last week the Sayreville Police Department and Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office said it was investigating allegations of harassment, intimidation and bullying on a “wide-scale level in which the players knew, tolerated and in general accepted.”

Sayreville has won three New Jersey sectional championships in the last four years.
