The statement went on to say the Lebanon School District does not condone the events that transpired after Friday night’s (Sept. 1) football game, and continues to encourage good sportsmanship from our athletes, coaches, and fans.

Two coaches were given 10-day suspensions by the Lebanon School District following an incident on Sept. 1 when the Camdenton Lakers defeated the Yellowjackets in Lebanon.

According to Camdenton Superintendent Dr. Tim Hadfield, “there were some behaviors directed towards our coaching staff that did not embody positive sportsmanship.”

“We were in contact with the Lebanon School District and we appreciated their attention to the matter. Since this involves a personnel issue in the Lebanon School District our district cannot comment further,” Hadfield said.

The Lebanon R-III School District released a statement after the incident occurred between the Camdenton football coaching staff and Lebanon football coaching staff after the Sept. 1 game. The statement did not identify the coaches nor provide any details of what transpired. Officials said emotions run high when the Yellowjackets face the Camdenton Lakers in sporting events due to our longstanding rivalry.

The statement went on to say the Lebanon School District does not condone the events that transpired after Friday night’s (Sept. 1) football game, and continues to encourage good sportsmanship from our athletes, coaches, and fans. The Lebanon School District has worked in conjunction with the Camdenton School District to review the incident, and has taken appropriate action.
