Nevada High School basketball players accused of hazing (WHO)
At least three Nevada High School students are in trouble for allegedly hazing another student during a basketball camp at Simpson College last month.

Nevada High School’s basketball coach Joel Fey, reportedly called the parents of the children involved and told them to pick up their children. Fey did not notify Indianola Police or Simpson College.

Disciplinary action has been taken against the accused and the superintendent says additional sanctions will come when the investigation is complete. School board president Curt Hoff says the school board made it a priority last year to address bullying and hazing issues.

The basketball camp was held July 18th through the 21st. According to Simpson, about 500 students attended the camp, put on by Simpson coach Bruce Wilson. However, the high school coaches are in charge of supervising their players. The coaches and players must stay in Simpson’s residence halls.
