Entire HS Team Drank Rival’s Urine
MISSOURI – An entire girls basketball team drank contaminated water during a game last month after rival players poured a cup of urine into their water cooler, it has been revealed.
Parents at Monett High School in Missouri are furious and public health officials are testing the members of the Lady Cubs team to determine whether they risk serious diseases from drinking the urine-spiked water.
Four Cassville High School players urinated into cups and dumped one of those cups into the drinking water that Monett used during the February 4 game at Cassville.
Monett lost the match, 26-37.
Monett school officials sent a letter to parents of the players last week informing them of the incident, the Monett Times reports.
Superintendent Brad Hanson pleaded with the students not to retaliate against the disgusting prank.
‘We are asking you, as parents, to help us work with our girls and their friends to handle this situation with professionalism and restraint,’ the letter said.
‘We encourage you to support our stance that retaliation in any way stoops to the level of the offense committed against us and is counterproductive.’
Cassville officials did not reveal when they learned of the incident, which occurred a month an a half ago.
They informed Monett administrators last week.
The girl whose urine was poured into the water cooler is being tested to determine whether she carries any infectious disease that could be transmitted to the Monett players.
Cassville administrators said they disciplined the players involved, though they said they could not say what punishment the girls received.
Parents, who were stunned by the prank, say the two schools – which are about 20 miles apartment – are conference rivals, but there is no history of pranks between the players.
