Members of Greely High School girls basketball team in Cumberland, Maine were disciplined this week.
It wasn’t for bad grades and it wasn’t for anything done on the court. It was for pictures surfacing of them giving a Nazi salute while in uniform, according to WLBZ.com.
In a letter to parents, the school’s principal and athletic director, Dan McKeone, explained that two girls appear to be giving the Adolf Hitler-style salute while a third girls sits between them, giving a peace sign. According to reports, one team member has been nicknamed “Hitler.”
McKeone didn’t disclose the exact nature of the punishment.
