Lake Catholic High School is facing allegations of hazing on their football team.

The allegations stem from a three day football camp on July 11, that was held at John Carroll University, according to the police report.

Lake Catholic High School released a statement on Thursday: 

"Lake Catholic High School strives to create a truly Catholic environment in which all students are treated with the respect and dignity they deserve as children of God.  As such, Lake Catholic does not tolerate actions by its students or staff  members which are contrary to our Catholic values and character.

When the school’s administration was made aware of the recent allegations of hazing activity involving some members of the school football team, action was quickly taken to investigate the matter and to reach out to the families of those affected.  The school has taken preliminary corrective measures against those involved and continues to consider what additional  measures might be appropriate in keeping with the school’s policies and Student Code of Conduct as all the facts become known."

The case is still under investigation.
