Police say the two boys, 16 and 17, bullied two fellow teammates from the wrestling team into fighting. During the fight, a 15-year-old boy broke his jaw.
Investigators say the assault happened in a team room with no supervision. The wrestling coach, Rob Hirsch, has been placed on unpaid suspension for 30 days.
He has since returned and released a statement, saying, "The boys involved failed to exercise good character and good judgment. I do not believe they meant to hurt anyone or put the program in jeopardy, but they did both. Their poor judgment is my poor judgment, for this, I am sorry."
He went on to say he will take a closer look at practice sessions and start up a plan to make sure all athletes learn from the mistakes made in the team room that day.
