The governing body of high school sports forwarded the photo, which shows seven wrestlers, all white, posing with a black tackling dummy with a noose around his neck, on Tuesday, according to the report. The wrestlers are wearing their team sweatshirts, and the dummy is wearing a Paulsboro wrestling shirt.
Phillipsburg School District Superintendent George Chando told nj.com action has been taken in response to the photo, but didn’t reveal what that action was.
The teams wrestled earlier this season. Phillipsburg won the match, 38-21, according to nj.com. Both schools boast powerhouse wrestling programs and are traditional opponents.
