Several female basketball players from Cassville High School in Missouri, have been accused of lacing their rival teammates water cooler with cups of urine, according to a Monday report.

The prank reportedly happen on Feb. 4 during a contentious game between the girl’s high school basketballs teams: Cassville High vs. Monett High.

According to KSDK, the schools are located about 20 miles apart in southwest Missouri, near the Arkansas/Missouri border.

Monett High is accusing some Cassville players of urinating into cups and then pouring the urine into Monett High’s water cooler during their basketball game.

The Cassville Superintendent Jill LeCompte acknowledged the Cassville High girl’s involvement, saying in a statement, “We do not condone these actions and regret that our students were involved in this unfortunate incident.”

The Cassville principal claims appropriate disciplinary measures have been taken, however Monett High is now asking that the Cassville students whose urine was poured into their water cooler be tested for communicable diseases. Monett High is suggesting that the incident was not only a behavior issue, but a health issue as well.

The high school female whose urine was poured into the cooler is currently being tested to find out if she has any diseases that could be transferred by way of urine consumption.

The R-1 administration of Monett High School is asking parents and students to take the high road on this and warns against any kind of retaliation.

Principal Brad Hanson of Monett High said, “We all need to remember that people make mistakes whether we’re adults or 14- to 18-year-old kids.” Hanson also asked that the community respond to this in a way that shows themselves as “the classy people we are.”
