Outrage over Victor Valley High boxing match

February 26, 2013 12:00:00 AM PST
A video apparently taken inside a classroom at Victor Valley High School shows two students in a boxing match. Parents have expressed outrage at the lack of adult supervision.

The two students, who were wearing boxing gloves, were cheered on by other students who gathered to watch.

School district officials don't think it was a spontaneous fight, but rather a planned event. It said the students in the video are all on the junior varsity baseball team.

It is believed that the fight took place as the coach was outside setting up the playing field. The students were supposed to be changing into their uniforms.

Superintendent Elvin Momon says the video was taken sometime in late November or early December. But he says it was never brought to the attention of administrators, until after it was sent out to the media. He said the coach was not aware.

The district isn't saying what if any disciplinary action will be taken. The superintendent says he's looking into what procedures might need to be changed to make sure this doesn't happen again.
