High-school basketball players at Tishomingo High School received more than they bargained for this summer while attended Connors State College for camp.
Both of their coaches were fired for taking a designated district school bus to a local convenience store to purchase alcohol, a member of the school board has confirmed.
One of the high-school basketball stars attending the summer camp told local authorities, "It sort of just disappointed us all." Although authorities aren't certain if the disappointment is rooted in the fact that the coaches weren't able to return with the alcohol or the fact they were let down by their actions.
Miller went on to say, “We noticed that the school bus was gone but he had told us to stay in our dorms and so we proceeded to do that and we just didn't find anything out until the next day.”
“We were pretty upset because we paid money out of pocket to go that camp, because we had to stay for three nights and we had to end up leaving on the second day," said Miller.”
It is reported that the clerks at the local convenience store noticed the school bus pulling in and the coaches exiting the vehicle. After they made their alcoholic purchases the clerk then contacted the local law enforcement authorities to ensure the safety of students.
The College where the summer camp was being held, does not allow alcoholic beverages on campus. It is unknown at this time if the students participated in the consumption of the alcohol, but it is most certainly important to note that the disappointment of the arrestIrina Voloshina | Dreamstime.coms means there will be no more low profile drinking occurring for the rest of their stay at the camp.
