No charges were filed as a result of the fight.
East St. Louis Superintendent Arthur R. Culver released a statement after the incident.
“We expect our teams to conduct themselves in a manner that will protect the safety of athletes, officials, coaches and spectators at sporting events,” he said in the statement.
“We regret that our cheerleading team did not conduct themselves in a manner commensurate with these expectations. After a thorough investigation, consequences were administered which resulted in the immediate conclusion of the cheerleading season for this school year.”
It’s not a good look for either program.
