MCHENRY, Ill. — A suburban water polo player says she was sexually assaulted during a high school game last year.

Rebecca Dabrowski told ESPN’s “Outside the Lines” she made a police report but no charges were filed.

In her four years playing co-ed water polo at McHenry West, Becca never complained about a male opponent being inappropriate, until last May during the first round of playoffs.

McHenry was playing Libertyville’s boys only team when Becca says she was attacked under water.

“He ripped my suit over and then had his hands wrapped around my suit and then with his other fingers he went inside my vagina,” she told ESPN.

Becca screamed and hit the boy. She later fouled him.

Becca filed a police report with Buffalo Grove where the game was played but no charges were ever filed.  The boy told investigators he doesn’t remember touching Becca inappropriately and if he did it was an accident.

Becca has filed a complaint with the U.S department of education office of civil rights.
