Parents at Monett High School in Monett, Missouri are raging mad after four Cassville High School female basketball players poured cups of urine into the Monett team's water cooler during a game. The entire team drank from the contaminated urn. According to Daily Mail.com, public health officials are testing members of the Monett Lady Cubs team to determine if any players caught any diseases or risk serious health problems from the urine-spiked water. The Cassville High School players urinated into cups and dumped one of those cups into the drinking water cooler that Monett used during their February 4 game at rival Cassville, which Cassville won, 37-26. Superintendent Brad Hansen pleaded with the students not to retaliate against the disgusting prank. The two schools are about 20 miles apart. Monett High School officials sent a letter to parents of the players last week informing them of the incident, but didn't reveal when they learned of the twisted stunt. "We are asking you, as parents, to help us work with our girls and their friends to handle this situation with professionalism and restraint," Monett High School Superintendent Brad Hanson wrote in the letter. "We encourage you to support our stance that retaliation in any way stoops to the level of the offense committed against us and is counterproductive." Cassville Assistant Superintendent Jill LeCompte issued a statement on March 22, which read in part: "Cassville R-4 School District believes that sportsmanship and maintaining high standards for our students is important. We do not condone these actions and regret that our students were involved in this unfortunate incident." "Student discipline is a private matter that we cannot discuss," the statement read. "We are in communication with the other school district and are working cooperatively with them to address questions or concerns." Four members of the Cassville girls basketball team have admitted their involvement in pouring urine into the water cooler provided to the Monett team, reported The Monett Times.
