After receiving reports of alleged hazing incidents regarding the Jordan High School wrestling team, the Canyons School District is in the midst of an ongoing investigation, according to Jennifer Toomer-Cook, director of communications for the Canyons School District.
Toomer-Cook said Canyons received the report late last week, adding the investigation began immediately.
"Since that time our investigators have confirmed some incidents of hazing," she said.
Toomer-Cook said it was her understanding that Canyons received the initial report from a parent and added that "appropriate steps are being taken according to policy."
She could not confirm how many students were involved in the alleged incident.
"There are state laws that bar hazing," said Toomer-Cook, "and we do not tolerate hazing in Canyons schools."
The 2013 Utah High School Activities Association 4A/5A tournament is scheduled for Feb. 13-14 at the UCCU Center at Utah Valley University in Orem.
