WHS athlete suspended for racial slur

WESTFIELD – One local high school boys soccer team is about to get a bit thinner for the stretch run. That’s because a local varsity player from Westfield High has been suspended for an indeterminate amount of time for uttering a racial slur.
The Westfield News was recently made aware of the alleged incident involving a Westfield High School boys soccer player, who is said to have uttered a racial slur at one of his opponents during a game played earlier this week.
Upon contacting Westfield High School’s athletic director’s office Thursday, school administrators issued a statement neither confirming nor denying the allegations, but rather stating: “Westfield High School does not tolerate this behavior and is investigating it.”
This incident comes on the heels of a racially-motivated incident at Westfield State where racist, sexist, and hate speech messages were posted on a message board in one of the campus’s residence halls last week.
