A HucksOnline headline on Monday listed the wrong high school JV team involved in a player suit against the West Bonner County School District. The high school JV team involved in the suit is Priest River. The headline was corrected soon afterward. But HucksOnline wants to make sure that readers know which high school and school district are involved. You can read the story again here.
The West Bonner County School District is being hit with a pair of negligence lawsuits over injuries to junior varsity football players. One suit alleges a JV coach flung a partially full water bottle at a player’s face, causing a laceration and a concussion. The other alleges an improperly equipped player suffered permanent vision impairment after being struck in the eye with a football during practice. Both suits were filed in 1st District Court on Thursday. Each suit seeks damages in excess of $10,000. School district Superintendent Mike McGuire could not be reached on Friday. A message seeking comment was not returned. Sandpoint attorney Brent Featherston filed the suits on behalf of student athletes Michael Clayton Ludolph and Thomas Reynolds, who were injured in separate incidents in Priest River last year/Keith Kinnaird, Bonner County Bee.
