The Georgia High School Association has levied penalties against Hancock Central High School for the postgame football brawl with Warren County this past season, according to a news release.
Penalties include all Hancock Central sports teams getting placed on “Severe Warning Status” for the 2012-13 and 2013-14 school years. Any major sportsmanship violations during this time will lead to more severe penalties.
Hancock Central must also have a written security plan for all football and basketball games sent to the GHSA executive director by July 15. Hancock Central also is being fined for the incident.
The GHSA decision was appealed by Hancock Central’s administration but the GHSA Appeal Board denied the appeal.
