FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - The joint investigation into last Friday’s football game between Huntington North and North Side High School found there was bad behavior that took place by both teams.

That’s according to a news release issued by both districts late this afternoon.

The release says, “Both school corporations are committed to use this as an opportunity to learn and grow.

We understand that communities can have historical perceptions of one another that often feed into stereotypes and misperceptions.

We also understand the tension that occurs in the heat of a game.

It is the responsibility of the adults in the school community to teach our young adults the proper ways to handle such situations.”
