LANCASTER – The Lancaster City Prosecutor’s Office is continuing its investigation into an alleged assault on a Millersport High School baseball player by an older student, officials said Thursday.
Terre Vandervoort, the city’s law director and prosecutor, said the case is part of an active investigation. She declined to discuss the specifics of her office’s inquiry into the assault case.
The mother of the injured student filed a police report with the Millersport Police Department on March 7. The report detailed an alleged hazing incident that occurred after a March 6 baseball practice and involved members of the baseball team. Millersport High School Principal Roger Montgomery said 10 to 12 baseball players were subjected to open-smacks on the back and were the targets of a thrown volleyball during the incident.
Only one student – a former baseball player – is under investigation by the prosecutor’s office.
