Moses Lake investigates racial slurs slung at Davis during game Saturday
The Moses Lake School District is investigating accusations of racial slurs being used towards Davis players during a basketball game Saturday night.
Superintendent Dr. Joshua Meeks has requested further information and/or videos from those present to help.
On his Facebook page, Dr. Meeks wrote, “Our district leadership team is taking these claims seriously and I can assure you that we are investigating the full scope of what transpired.”
According to several social media posts by parents and fans from the Yakima school, students and team members from Davis were called the “N” word. The team was then reportedly provided a police escort to their bus in order to leave school property.
