Missouri School Says Rival Girls Basketball Team Poured Urine Into Opponent's Water

What's in your water?
A basketball prank involving two Missouri high schools has forced administrators to bring in an infectious-disease specialist.

Why? Four girls poured urine into their opponents' water cooler during a basketball game. So says a letter to parents from the principal of Monett High School, a southwest Missouri school that was apparently the victim of a really gross Cassville High School stunt.

"We have been working throughout the day to determine if any health risks may be present due to the nature of this prank," principal David Steward says in his letter to parents, obtained by Daily RFT and on view below.

What does Cassville have to say about this?

We left a message at Cassville High School yesterday and will update if we hear back. The Associated Press, however, says that the Cassville School District confirmed in a statement that an "unspecified disciplinary action" has been taken in response to an "inappropriate act."

And the Monett letter says that Cassville officials have said they are sorry:

Mr. Steward and Coach [Daryl] Bradley have been in contact with administrators at Cassville throughout the day discussing the incident. Cassville has disciplined the students involved and the investigation is ongoing to determine if further discipline is warranted. Their administrators have apologized for the incident and regret that anything of this nature has occurred.

As of yesterday, superintendent of the Monett School District had no comment, but his office did pass along to Daily RFT the full letter, sent out last week in reference to a February 4 game at Cassville High School.

The letter says that four different players urinated in a small cup and then selected one to use, which they poured into the drinking cooler during the game.

In addition to contacting the infectious-disease department at Cox South Hospital to determine potential risks, the school says that the individual whose urine was used will be "undergoing tests to determine if any health risks are present."

Steward says he is angry -- but asks parents not to stoop to their level, that is, no retaliation!

He says:

We are asking you, as parents, to help us work with our girls and their friends to handle this situation with professionalism and restraint. We understand that all of us in Monett are angered and frustrated by this occurrence and the amount of time before the incident came to light. We encourage you to support our stance that retaliation in any way stoops to the level of the offense committed against us and is counter productive.

Here's the full letter.

Say where you have seen these things happen! It does no one any good to talk about it but not add where it happened. I agree that we support juevenile behavior...but wait..they ARE jueveniles. It is just wrong, inappropriate behavior - period. Let's line each of them up behind three cups of Gatorade and facing the other girls team. Let them pick the cup without the "surprise!"

Problem is that culture has two faces here. Look at TV and people are celebrated for juvenile behavior like this, but then you have adults who say that this is wrong and inappropriate. Set by example people!

I won't say where this happened, but a few years ago I witnessed a prank where teenage boys threw a bucket of urine from the back of a pickup truck onto a crowd of people waiting in line at a popular area attraction. The bulk of the bucket landed on the head of one boy who already suffered from an anxiety disorder. The perpetrators were never captured.

Punishment? They probably just got suspended for the rest of the year. Now they are at home watching soaps and eating Oreos. I think a good punishment would have been to clean the opposing girls' locker room each week, write a public letter of apology, etc. Make them DO something about their actions.

No, not all kids pee in their rivals water, only 4 of the team members did it here. Maybe YOU or YOUR kids do that, but it's against the law and most people know this. And so what if someone at a restaurant did it as well, they would need to be brought up on charges if they were caught too. This is not a "kids will be kids" or an "Everybody does it." We are talking about teenagers pissing in drinking water. Not spiking the punch bowl at the dance.

They need to be arrested. This is assault. The adults who have done things like pee in coffee urns at work have been arrested and fired and these girls need to know this is illegal and serious.
