AMHERST, MA (WGGB/WSHM) - Last June, the Amherst School District became aware of possible hazing that involved current and former ultimate frisbee team members.

The district's superintendent tells Western Mass News that multiple students reported the incident.

He says as soon as the district became aware, they reported it to the Amherst Police Department.

Both police and the school district conducted investigations.

No criminal charges have been filed.

The district says the students will be reprimanded by significantly cutting down their Spring 2020 season.
