Local high school soccer team being investigated for hazing

ROSWELL, Ga. (WXIA) -- 11Alive has learned a local high school soccer team has been suspended for a crude hazing event that happened at the school.

It all took place at Centennial High School in Roswell. So far, both police and Fulton County Schools have not released much information; however, did confirm there is an investigation underway.

Fulton County Schools issued this statement:

"At this point in the investigation the decision has been made to cancel the team's next four games."

According to the school's website, the team's season was supposed to start Feb. 24 against Roswell High School. If the four-game suspension holds, the team will not play until Mar. 10.

Parents and students told 11Alive that there is a team tradition where members shave their heads before the first game of the season. This year, one team member refused to take part. On Wednesday, other team members allegedly ganged up to teach that student a lesson.

According to a nation study by StopHazing.org, 47 percent of high school students reported that they had been hazed and 92 percent said they would never tell students or teachers about it.
