Police investigate hazing claims at Nodaway HS

GREENFIELD, Iowa (AP) — Police say they are investigating allegations of hazing involving the wrestling team at Nodaway Valley High School in Greenfield.

KCCI-TV in Des Moines reports the city’s police chief confirmed the incident but declined to reveal details other than to say it involved several students.

The school’s athletic director, David Huff, sent a letter to parents Friday saying the school is aware of a hazing incident on the wrestling team and that the school conducted its own investigation. He says disciplinary action is being taken and the school is taking action to prevent a similar incident in the future.

Superintendent Casey Berlau declined to say if any students had been disciplined and declined further comment.
