The ruling is in response to last week's fight between the teams during a basketball game that ended up with five students being charged. It's one of several additional guidelines the school system is implementing, such as:

  • Alumni, parents, spectators, etc. will not be allowed on the court or field of play without prior approval of administration.
  • Cheer teams will not be allowed to approach the other team’s sideline or space.
  • Cheers/chants should only promote positive reinforcement of individual athletic teams and should be reflective of WS/FCS core values.

A release from the school system says district leaders want to improve their practices after last week's altercation. Three Carver students were charged along with two Winston-Salem Prep students. The students are facing a Disorderly Conduct by Fighting charge.

The district says it will form a committee to survey all crowd control procedures and another committee to compile and provide clear district guidelines and expectations for sportsmanship and athlete safety.
