2008 Hazing incident at Maine West H.S. revealed
The Maine Township School District now confirms, a student athlete at Maine West High School was hazed four years ago.
School officials say they learned only recently that a freshman baseball player had his pants pulled down in a locker room in 2008.
The coach of that team, Michael Divicenzo, went on to coach the school’s varsity soccer team; he was reassigned this month after a 14-year-old soccer player complained of being held down and sexually assaulted by his teammates in another hazing incident in September.
School district officials are asking anyone with knowledge of similar hazing incidents to report them.
