Wharton, TX — A Texas cheerleading squad is benched over a goodie bag trick.
The Wharton High School varsity cheerleading squad is sidelined for putting condoms in so-called spirit bags for varsity football players.
It happened last week just before the team's Homecoming game.
The school district punished the girls with a one-day,in school suspension and no time on the field for violating the conduct code.
Some students and parents think the whole thing has been blown out of proportion
Teresa Holmes, Parent, "If they did that, it was just a joke. They need to go on with that and let children be children."
The mother of one of the cheerleaders said she fully supports the district's punishment.
She also said the squad did intend the whole thing as a joke, one that they realize was inappropriate.
