Ankeny School District Addresses Postgame Celebration Inquiry

Ankeny and Southeast Polk high schools are having a locker room celebration that has apparently gotten out of hand. A social media video shows Ankeny soccer players damaging lockers at Southeast Polk. The video shows what appears to be players ripping locker doors off their hinges and an adult hitting a locker with his fist. On Wednesday, KCCI was informed by an assistant coach from Ankeny that the head coach was not in training. The Ankeny School District tells KCCI the incident is under investigation, but did not elaborate or respond to any of KCCI’s questions. The district did not say whether any players or coaches were part of the investigation. Southeast Polk and Ankeny school districts said they are aware of the videos. Southeast Polk told KCCI the districts are working together to find a solution. Pleasant Hill Police told KCCI they have no open investigation and officers assume the schools are carrying out the investigation independently. A locker vendor was southeast of Polk on Tuesday assessing the damage. Previous Cover: Ankeny High School post-game celebration under investigation
