PARADISE, Calif. -- Paradise High School appealed four of the six suspensions that Northern Section Commissioner Liz Kyle handed down on Tuesday.
These four were suspended for leaving the bench area during a fight on the field during last Friday's game against Live Oak.
It started after a Live Oak player tackled Paradise's Lukas Hartley. In the video, a Live Oak player starts to punch Hartley. Players from both teams ran on the field.
According to the Northern Section Constitution and Bylaws:
"Any athlete or coach, as a participant or spectator of a contest, who is ejected for a flagrant foul, dangerous or unsportsmanlike conduct, or any athlete who leaves the confines of the bench or team area during a fight that may break out or has broken out, shall be disqualified from participating in the remainder of the contest and any subsequent FROSH/SOPH. and Varsity contests."
The school filed the appeal on Wednesday and a hearing will take place at Pleasant Valley High tomorrow at 3 p.m.
