Missouri school investigates urine in water cooler prank by girls basketball team

CASSVILLE, Mo. — A southwest Missouri high school says four girls’ basketball players from a rival school poured urine into the opposing team's water cooler during a February game.

Monett High's principal told parents in a letter last week that the four Cassville High players each urinated into a cup, then dumped the contents of one of the cups into the Monett team cooler at a Feb. 4 game in Cassville. The schools are located about 20 miles apart near the Missouri-Arkansas border.

A written statement from the Cassville school district confirms that unspecified disciplinary action has been taken in response to the “inappropriate act.”

Monett High School has contacted infectious disease specialists and says a Cassville student is being tested for potential health risks. Monett's principal encouraged parents not to retaliate.
