SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB/WSHM) - Western Mass News spoke with the principal of St. Thomas the Apostle School on Thursday after reaching out for comment yesterday regarding the Wilshire Spirits girls’ basketball team accusing the St. Thomas girl’s team of making derogatory comments.

She clarified this team does not have affiliation with the school, but it’s a team of the Catholic Youth Organization league and uses the church’s name.

We have reached out to multiple people in the organization again Thursday for comment, but have not yet heard back.
