When there is a fight that ends an athletic contest, it is usually between players from two different teams.
Last week, though, Hillcrest baseball coach Paul Gaskins called his team’s game with Hunter in the fourth inning when two Husky teammates got into an altercation.
According to Canyons School District spokesperson Jennifer Toomer-Cook, the two Hillcrest players were ejected by the umpire, which means they missed the Huskies’ 10-0 loss against Cottonwood Monday.
"We are very disappointed and saddened by the way it has affected the entire team," said Toomer-Cook about the incident. "The principal and coach sat down and talked to the team about behavioral expectations. These are great kids and we have full confidence that they will work, focus hard and come together as a team."
After the 10-0 loss and the 4-1 loss at Hunter, Hillcrest had a 5-14 overall record and was 3-6 in league play.
